With a population estimated to be around 186,000, of which nearly 140,000 are residents in the urban area of the city.

Built on the banks of the River Nene, Peterborough is thought to date back to before AD 655 when it was known as Medeshamstede. Present day Peterborough is the latest of towns which has gained from where the river Nene leaves permanently drained land for the Fens. The Fens lie to the east of the city and in some places, they lie below sea level.
Peterborough was made accessible by the river Nene to the port of Wisbech in 1761. The river Nene still remains a popular route for boats – but now for holiday makers instead of much larger commercial vessels. Book a narrow boat for a week – it is Fantastic fun!
