Whether you want to buy or rent, Peterborough offers great housing and lifestyle choice.

If you want to privately rent, the starting point is online, with well-established sites such as Zoopla or Rightmove.

An average-price 3 bedroom home is around £700-£900 per month and, again, at any given time there are thousands of properties to let within a short radius of the city. It may also be worth talking to an agent in the city, such as Belvoir Lettings.

If you think you may qualify for affordable rental options through the local authority, you can get the info you need on the following portals, either at or the city council’s website.
