This such a gem in an area with no other cafe facilities, and is often busy on hot days and holidays, but can be quiet and restful at other times. It serves sandwiches, freshly made, toasties, cakes, drinks hot and cold, and ice creams, yum....More

Lovely park in central Peterborough with a lovely little cafe. There are different areas to explore - sunken rose garden, playgrounds, aviaries, tennis courts etc. Time to relax.

I viewed this lovely park through rose tinted glasses because it’s where I used to play as a kid before we moved in 1978. Remembered so much and pleased to say they’ve kept in virtually the same. Lovely Buttercross cafe serves great ice cream and...More

nice place to go for a walk on your lunch break if working local. Well maintained by the council. Some interesting characters floating around at times though!

Typical municipal run park, well looked after and worth a visit in Spring or summer. Usual caveates regarding being there after dark.Unfortunately wino's and junkies frequent the park after dark, so be cautious. But don't let that diswade you from visiting during the day

Pleasant enough for a park at this time of year; overall well cared for but the sunken garden looked that it needed a good weed. Café was closed. Would have been better (obviously) in Summer with children using the paddling pool and playgrounds
