Just got back from a pleasant weekend spent in Peterborough.

We had to take Eve back to Cambridge on Friday so we decided to make a little holiday of the trip.  Peterborough is about an hour's drive from Cambridge so after we had unloaded Eve at university we drove back up to our hotel.

The weather was kind to us and we had a very relaxing time there.  Here's what we saw...

The Cathedral

Very impressive

An Antony Gormley statue
These iron men get everywhere - maybe Antony Gormley is planning to take over the world with them.

Katherine of Aragon's burial place
The red fruit placed on her tomb are pomegranates - these were her symbol - and people leave them, along with flowers, as a tribute to her.

Cathedral Square looks quite continental

The River Nene

Catching the sun in the Cathedral precincts

Edwardian costume display at the museum

This dress is actually from the Television series, Downton Abbey, it was worn by Elizabeth McGovern who plays Cora, Countess of Grantham.

A lovely weekend, and now back at home feeling recharged and ready to go!
