Brief History of Peterborough Cathedral
Peterborough Cathedral can trace its origins back to 655AD when a monastery was founded on the site in the Middle Ages by King Peada.
The cathedral was destroyed by Vikings in 870 and later rebuilt as a Benedictine Abbey in 970 AD. It survived numerous attacks but was destroyed by fire in 1116. it was rebuilt in its current form and became a cathedral in 1541.
It costs around £3600 each day to keep the cathedral open to visitors.
