Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is really a 'must do' while in Peterborough. The old printing machines, and everything that made up a pre-digital printer's workshop, is really quite remarkable. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the old works come alive. We spent nearly 2 hours there and highly recommend a visit, even if you think you're not interested.

Mary Zimmerman provided a guided tour of the Print Works and what a wonderful guide she was. She and her late husband have a wonderful connection with Peterborough building miniature model railways displayed at the YMCA. Back to the print works, the place feels like a step back in time. All the print machines are in working order and do print jobs for the towns people. It is fantastic to see these presses in operation, so mach moving parts and to think they were designed in the 1900 - what engineering ! Without the help of the wonderful volunteers, this would all be lost to time. Thanks Peterborough!

The passionate volunteers here told us about the printing works' place in the region's history, and showed us how every aspect of linotyping, typesetting and printing was done. They started up all the old machines for a demonstration of how they worked - the precision and elegance of the machines in motion was beautiful. A thoroughly enjoyable visit.

Spent a wonderful morning at the museum to see a working print museum was like stepping back in time, the history is so important to keep and see how another time was lived. A must visit for everyone.

This historic printery and equipment / displays are an exemplary example of the skills, knowledge and sophistication of compositers and Linotype operators in bygone eras.
Thank heavens for local volunteers for the hundreds of hours and dedication in making this the attraction of the area.
And they are dog friendly...... best stop on our road trip.

We were lucky enough to have a tour on a Saturday when they aren't usually open. Thanks Mary. A fascinating place full of history being restored by passionate, well informed and caring volunteers. Would recommend a visit to anyone interested in the history of the town.
