Rivergate Shopping Centre, Peterborough PE11 1EL

The Cathedral City of Peterborough is one of the major commercial centres in the East of England. Located 84 miles north of London, 82 miles east of Birmingham and 38 miles north west of Cambridge, it is strategically positioned just off the A1(M) with easy access to the A14, A15 and A47, and in turn to the M1 and M11.


The city is served by the East Coast Mainline railway service, with a journey time of under 50 minutes to London Kings Cross, 1hr 25 mins to Leeds and just 3 hrs 36 to Edinburgh. There are four international airports within 1 hour 45 minutes’ drive time.


The second fastest growing city in the UK, Peterborough has a resident population of 189,000 people, a retail catchment of 950,000 people and a comparison goods spending power of £1.69 bn. With a working age population of over 120,000 people, and an excellent house price to earnings ratio, the City is a vibrant and thriving economic centre. The three most affluent ACORN Categories (Affluent Achievers, Rising Prosperity and Comfortable Communities) account for 60% of shoppers, above the UK average.


A £12m investment into the City Centre environment has had a transformational effect, and has seen an influx of new operators into the central area. Ongoing development on the South Bank, directly to the south of the Rivergate Centre, will eventually provide over 1,000 new residential units together with a large mixed use office and leisure led scheme.
