How Peterborough Cathedral managed to get the Tim Peake event amazes me, it good enough to be in one of the National museums. To be able to stand within a couple of feet of the actual capsule that brought him back from space was incredible....More

Visited the Cathedral which currently (until November 5th) has an exhibition about Tim Peake's spacecraft. Somehow befitting it's location the exhibition has Tim's return to Earth capsule and a VR journey too.

Has another brilliant visit to one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the country. Went specifically to see the Tim Peake ISS spacecraft exhibition. It was fantastic. What a treat. And it was free! Highly recommend but be quick, it ends on November the 5th.

Peterborough Cathedral was worth going to Peterborough for, especially that Tim Peakes return space capsule was on exhibition and it was all free! Great City with a lot of friendly people there.
