The nearest railway station is Peterborough Station, only 15 minutes away from the site, with most parts of the UK accessible to one of these stations. Kings Cross to Peterborough is only 45 minutes on specific trains.

International Airports at Birmingham, Stansted, Luton or East Midlands are all within easy reach and only approx. 90 minutes from site.

Cash Machines are situated at the rear of the Grandstand, and in the main Exhibition Hall

There are 22,000 free parking spaces – so plenty of room for everyone. They also have plenty of disabled parking bays.

Peterborough Arena was the exciting new name given to this amazing venue in March 2012 – and we are hugely proud to share it with you.

The successful rebranding exercise and fresh launch was designed to springboard us into the next decade and beyond, as we continue to attract returning and brand new public shows, trade shows and events to the venue.

Already the location of choice for many of the major indoor and outdoor events and shows, our aim is to continue growing as the region’s premier multi-purpose events venue for many diverse events, and a key location on the UK entertainment map.

Live music concerts, exhilarating ice shows, nationally acclaimed antique festivals, faith and family events are all part of our event make up.

Peterborough Arena is situated at the East of England Showground – a site that has a rich history of staging agricultural and county shows since moving here in 1971. The Showground is owned by the East of England Agricultural Society, which is a charity supporting farming – locally and nationally.
