Guildhall (Peterborough)

The Guildhall is one of the prominent buildings in the cathedral city of Peterborough.

Also known as the Butter Cross or Market Cross, it stands in Cathedral Square, the old Market Place, and was built in 1671.

It is a large single storey room supported by a number of arches, below which the butter market was held until 1926, while the upper room has been used as schoolroom, magistrates court and gaol.

There is a clock and the Royal arms of Charles II on the East gable.
