Share with us the good things and not-so-good things about your visit to the Cathedral, and you could win a chance to treat yourself.
The Cathedral is inviting visitors – and people who have never set foot in the place – to answer a few questions on what makes a good visitor experience. Those completing the survey will be entered into a prize draw in November with the chance of winning Queensgate Centre shopping vouchers, dinner for two at luxurious Orton Hall Hotel, a bespoke Cathedral tour for six, and other enticing prizes.
The survey takes just a few minutes to complete and can be found online. Alternatively, over the next few weeks volunteers at the Cathedral or new Visitor Centre will be interviewing visitors to fill the survey in with them.
“The Cathedral is one of the top visitor attractions in Peterborough but we don’t want to take that for granted,” said Stuart Orme, Head of Operations. “We want to find out what people most enjoy about their time at the Cathedral and what we could do to make that experience even better. We also want to hear from people who have never visited before and find out why, and what might persuade them to do so.”
Until recently Peterborough Cathedral was visited by around 55,000 people annually, but this number has fallen over the last couple of years whilst substantial works have been underway to improve access to the main entrance and convert two listed buildings in the Precincts into the new Cathedral Visitor Centre.
Now that these works are completed, the Cathedral hopes the survey will help ensure the best possible welcome to visitors, especially as it prepares for its 900th anniversary in 2018.
