Peterborough England Culture

The first census in the UK in 1801 saw Peterborough's population soar from 700 to 3,500 in 10 years, and it began the 20th century with a population of 30,000 that grew much larger than 100 years earlier. Although the early immigrants to Peterborough were predominantly Irish and British, people from all over the world have called the village their home for centuries. In 1996, the Italian community in Peterboro was estimated to have around 7 000 people, making it the second largest ethnic group in the UK after the Irish.
The Burgh of St. Peter, which developed into Peterborough at the end of the Middle Ages, has become one of the oldest and most important cities in England. Although there were many religious institutions, it became a cathedral only when the city became a city. However, this changed in the 17th century, when it became home to a large number of churches, such as Christ the King Church, the Cathedral of London and the Church of St Peter and St Peter. Although Peterboro was more fortunate than most, it was destroyed and sold in 1815 to be built by Queen Elizabeth I's Lord High Treasurer, most of which were designed and built by his son-in-law Sir John Stirling.
