Wartime Peterborough walk

Join us this November for a tour to commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War. Take a tour around the streets of Peterborough city centre and discover more about the city during the two world wars. Find out about the servicemen from the area and the units they fought in – including a regiment in World War I, armed with bicycles. Hear about the industries in Peterborough during World War II and what they made. Discover the chilling role Peterborough was to have played had the Germans invaded… and which top Nazi had his eye on Burghley House to become his new home… Learn what happened when Peterborough was bombed, where American and Polish servicemen were stationed in the city and which Hollywood film star used to drink in the local pubs. A fascinating trip into our more recent past for those who are interested in our wartime history – or for those who lived through it. Booking is recommended for this special tour. To book, please call Peterborough Museum at 01733 864663, or book online here: https://vivacity.org/heritage-booking/
