Living in Peterborough

Expats living in Peterborough can enjoy a historical cathedral city with a population of around 214,000. It is the most populous city in Cambridgeshire and has long been an important center for transport. Situated 75 miles north of London, Peterborough adjoins the lowlands of East Anglia and is known as “The Gateway to the Fens”. The city’s long history is evidenced in Saint Peter's Cathedral, regarded as one of the most important 12th-century buildings in England to have survived largely intact. Peterborough is also known for Longthorpe Tower, where the visitor will find a well-preserved set of medieval era murals. The city is currently experiencing something of a boom in both employment and population, and newly arrived expats living in Peterborough can keep abreast of events in the city by joining other internationally focused individuals at the InterNations online expatriate community.

Moving to Peterborough

Peterborough has been a transport hub for many years. Today, it is a main stop on the high speed Edinburgh to London line and is also connected to rail services running east to west and serving the local towns. It is less than an hour from London’s Kings Cross, making it a convenient commuter town. It was also once an inland port on the River Nene. It is on the major north to south M1 / M11 motorway corridor and is connected by road and rail to Stansted International Airport, just 60 miles to the south, so expatriates moving to Peterborough should not have any trouble getting to the city. The city became a designated new town in the 1960s, which created much growth. This has added a significant stock of modern housing to the older properties in the area. New expats moving to Peterborough can consult other expatriates on the forums and message boards of InterNations for insider information on the best places in the city to live.

Working in Peterborough

Peterborough has successfully positioned itself as one of the leading environment cities in the UK, creating a wealth of new jobs in related sectors. The city has experienced some of the largest economic growth in the country and has seen the creation of many new businesses in the area. Despite Peterborough’s location near some large scale agriculture, the service sector dominates the local economy, with industry second and agriculture a distant third. It has the largest concentration of environmental businesses in the UK. To make the most of these opportunities, expats working in Peterborough can join InterNations and connect with other global minds on the site. Our Expat Magazine, meanwhile, provides lots of information on the expatriate lifestyle.

    For me, the InterNations events are the best part. I attend almost every get-together and always get to know lots of friendly fellow expats.
