It’s Christmas next week and seasonal festivities are well underway in and around Peterborough One. From gorgeous last-minute gift ideas to tempting treats and Christmas carolling to local events, there’s no better place to be on the lead up to the big day.

Open for Business

If you’re yet to get goodies for your nearest and dearest, then don’t fret, PE1’s stores, services and eateries will be open until Christmas Day. Please note that individual store opening hours may vary, so check with retailers before visiting to avoid disappointment.

Skate Van Hage

Don’t forget that our ice skating rink is open over the Christmas and New Year period. The magical rink is made of real ice, and comes complete with atmospheric lighting and festive music. It is open from 11am to 7pm, with the exception of Christmas Eve when it will be open from 9am to 4pm, New Year’s Eve from 9am to 4pm and New Year’s Day from 10am to 4pm.

Book tickets for ice rink.

Offers and Promotions

Many of our stores already have sales, offers and discounts available to shoppers – it’s the perfect time to bag a bargain! After Boxing Day, however, you can expect to see even more cut-price finds in our shops. Don’t miss out and be sure to head back to PE1 from Boxing Day onwards.


PE1 is looking forward to the New Year and everything 2019 will bring. Along with an ever-evolving retail mix, there are plenty of exciting events, sparkling shows and great giveaways lined up. Keep your eyes peeled to our website, Facebook and Twitter to ensure you’re up-to-date with all the latest developments.

Targetfollow, managing agents for PE1, says: “2018 has been a very exciting and busy year for Peterborough One Retail Park. We’ve hosted several eye-popping events throughout the year, including our Christmas Lights Switch On which saw over 2,500 visitors. Christmas is always a hectic time, but we’re thoroughly enjoying all the festivities the season has to offer. We’d like to take this opportunity to wish all our customers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We look forward to seeing you at PE1 throughout 2019.”
