Location

Peterborough has been the fastest growing University City in the UK, with links to London Kings Cross in only 47 minutes.

Our apartments are a 2 minute walk to the city's largest shopping centre "Queensgate". Restaurants, bars, the railway station and shops like Waitrose are a short walk away.

We recommend "Prevost" for high end dining, "Cote" for mid range in town and "Dog in a Dublet" for traditional country pub. Don't forget the Chinese barge "East" on the river.

Peterborough is famous for it's magnificent 900 year old Cathedral, the resting place of Catherine of Aragon (Henry VIII first wife) and film location of period drama, The Barchester Chronicles.

Ferry Meadows Country Park & Sacrewell Farm (great for children), Nene River, Flag Fen Archaeology Park, theatres, golf courses and Peterborough football ground all a short distance away. The city even has a speedway team!

Further afield, by car or train, more discoveries await.
Experience the world renowned 600-year-old University of Cambridge, The Queen's country residence at Sandringham, Ely Cathedral and scenic Norfolk with its quaint villages, Norfolk broads and coastal retreats.

The magnificent Georgian town of Stamford is a short drive (14 miles), home to 16th century Burghley House (annual Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials), the famous George Hotel, and nearby is the outdoor Shakespeare Theatre at Tolethorpe Hall (picnics on the lawns).

GemStays is an experience, not just a Stay.
