Getting to Your Training Venue in Peterborough

The training venue is accessible through Peterborough Train Station. There are no other train stations nearby but you can still reach the venue via bus. Here are our recommended modes of transportation:

Peterborough Train Station
Peterborough PE1 1QL, United Kingdom

Queensgate Bus Interchange
Peterborough PE1 1LU, United Kingdom

If you’re starting from Peterborough Train Station, walk for five minutes to Peterborough, Queensgate Bus Station and take bus number 2. After four stops, get off at Longthorpe, Woburn Close and walk for 16 minutes to Thorpe Wood, the training venue location. 

An alternative option is to take a taxi from the train station which is a 4-minute ride costing £8 - £10. The training venue is about 3.8 km from the train station so walking may not be the best option as it may take about 50 minutes to get there on foot. 


If you are going to bring a car to the training venue, Holiday Inn Peterborough - West has plenty of complimentary parking spaces. If parking is full, you can still park at nearby car parks such as Orton Mere Station Car Park or Rowing Lake Car Park. If you are going into the centre for lunch try Clare Green Car Park which is safe and secure.

The training venue in Thorpe Wood is a car-dependent location as most places need a car to get there. It has a walk score of 26 out of 100, which means about 70% of places you might need are only accessible by car. 


If you are travelling to the training venue, you can consider staying at Holiday Inn Peterborough - West. The hotel is a 4-star hotel that is closest to the training venue. You can take advantage of its facilities such as a restaurant, bar, pool, spa and many more. If you prefer something cheaper, Dragonfly Hotel Peterborough - Surya Hotels is a 3-star hotel that is a 3-minute drive away from the venue. There are more affordable hotels in the city centre if you prefer to stay near shops and restaurants. Check out Travelodge Peterborough Central or Pearl Hotel for a much cheaper price per night. Visit this website to learn more about hotel accommodations. 


The most convenient way to grab some food is at the hotel restaurant you are staying in. The nearest cafe to the training venue is Ferry Meadows WaterSports Centre Cafe. With its reasonable prices and lovely outdoor seating, it’s a great option for a warm breakfast and a good cup of coffee. If you want to discover more places to eat, the Queensgate Shopping Centre is the best location. When you're there, don't forget to try Embe Soul Food & Drink Restaurant, The Ladz Peterborough, and Mega Bite. 

Since the training venue is about four miles away from the shopping centre, you might rush to grab a quick lunch and end up at fast-food chains. You can still try to eat healthily with The Good Stuff - Healthy Fast Food Takeaway at the shopping centre. This fast-food restaurant has naturally sourced food and fairly priced meals such as tasty wraps and vegan pancakes.
