Are you a student looking to explore the vibrant city of Peterborough? Whether you're new to the area or have been here for a while, there's always something new to discover.

What to eat

If you are feeling like grabbing something to eat, try…

  • Energising your day with a beverage from Starbucks.
  • Twisting up your snack game at Auntie Anne’s where you can find sweet and savoury soft pretzels.
  • Satisfying your seafood cravings at Parrotts Fish and Chips.
  • Spicing up your platter with curries, kebabs and other delights from The Curry King.

Other things to do?

But life is not all about eating so how about enjoying yourself as you roam the city by…

  • Rolling the dice and enjoy various tabletop games at The Dice Box.
  • Swinging into a world of glowing excitement at Glo Golf.
  • Sailing through the Nene at Peterborough Boat Hire.

The great thing about these places is that the ARU Student Union have secured discounts to help you get the most out of your day out. It also means there is so much more you can discover as you explore around Peterborough!
