PETERBOROUGH GUILDHALL

Peterborough Guildhall is a notable feature of the pedestrianised Cathedral Square.  It was built between 1670-1 to celebrate the restoration of King Charles II. It is believed that the Guildhall replaced an earlier timber framed Moothall and Guildhall standing on the northern side of the square and that it is situated on or near the site of a covered ‘Butter Cross’, the town’s old dairy market. Its upper floor was in use for council meetings until the 1930s and currently houses electrical equipment.  It is not open to the public.
