Peterborough Cathedral is one of the finest surviving Noman buildings in England, famed as the burial place of Katharine of Aragon and (briefly) Mary Queen of Scots. Nestling up to the south wall of the Cathedral are the Cloisters, once a very important place in the life of Peterborough Abbey and its monastic community. The inner walls of the Cloisters were taken down after the ravages of the Civil War but the outer ones remain. One of these is the oldest standing wall in Peterborough and a delightfully old-fashioned iron sign declares that this was the wall of the Great Cloister. In the south west corner, look out for the spectacularly carved gateway into what was once the Abbot’s lodging. With the marks of history all around you, this sheltered south-facing space is a wonderful setting for outdoor theatre.
