Over 100 Years of Beers!

About the Railway

The Railway Hotel is the third oldest hotel in Peterborough, having been built in 1891, opening on the 24th December. W Britten, Licensee. The building was described at the time as palatial, with the Copula Tower on the roof being a feature. The hotel has played host to Governors and high ranking officials during its 125 year history. In 1949 a murder/suicide in the hotel was big news at the time.

Some guests have reported some GHOSTLY happenings!

Renovations over recent years have endeavoured to retain the historic character of the building, while incorporating modern conveniences expected by the travellers of today. Renovated hotel rooms, some ensuite, air conditioned, large TVs. All refurbished to a high standard at sensible prices.

Impressive architecture of the building is highlighted by feature paint work, which gives an insight into heritage work that has been done to the interior.
