has one of the highest chav percentage populations in the country, equally has a large emo community, aka 'the square lot'. rather grim. you cannot step foot there without getting chewing gum on your shoe.
-whoa, look, theres a brawl breaking out in cathedral square between the emos and the chavs, its hilarious! lets watch from the top floor of maccy d's.

-hey, i hope you're not planning on driving through peterborough. let's take a longer route to avoid it, otherwise some chavs could throw stones at the car.

Not to be confused with the Peterborough of the UK, this particular Peterborough is nestled on the banks of the Otonabee River (an Ojibwa word meaning "Shit-stink Carp Water")located in Southern Ontario Canada, the City of Peterborough and is now home to almost 70,000 people.
The present location of Peterborough once was the site of a Huron village, "Awananastufuk" (loosely translated to mean a "place with 7 glacial drumlins, many mosquitoes, as well as a river, which is badly in need of some kind of lock system to facilitate transport and trade, but not worth our while to stay and build it so we'll go somewhere else and who the hell's idea was it to move here any way? He's getting a fucking tomahawk to the head I can tell you that much.")

The site of Peterborough was abandoned until the 1820s, when a ship of Irish immigrants, bound for York, crashed in the rapids of the Otonabee (which, interestingly enough, was not the most direct route for them to have taken to York. Showing the hand of fate in the creation of Peterborough). These immigrants established a community which has continued to flourish ever since. The pioneers named the town after the intrepid navigator, Peter Robinson, who had guided their voyage. Originally called "Place-where-that- butthead-Peter-crashed-the-boat" the name was shortened to "Peter-butthead" and finally to the current "Peterborough."

In the late 19th century, Peterboroughians constructed the largest hydraulic liftlock in the world. More than 14,000 workers were brought in to work on the project. Of these, 13 settled in Peterborough with their families (it should be noted that of the 13, 12 had suffered debilitating injuries that severely limited their mobility or mental capacity. The Thirteenth, Sean "Crazy Drunk" O'Doule, founded a local tavern called the "Pig's Ear.") The liftlock still functions today and has done well at the Canadian Tourism Awards: being the four time recipient of "Most Inexplicable Attraction" award, and having never been defeated in the "Ugliest Landmark" category.

A smallish town/city in England - 80 miles north of London.

Was once a fairly respecticable town, but now home to chavs -

Peterborough is also home to an extremley large illegal immigrant population that can be found in "little karachi" which is concerntrated on lincoln road

Peterborough has no worthwhile attractions apart from its cathedral and ethnic minority chavs - and ladettes who enjoy shagging ethnic minority chav's in the park
Guy 1: Shall we go to peterborough?
Guy 2: no way dude - that place is full of them chavs and illegals dude

A town in NH. Home to lots of cool people. Also where Sensation of Sight was filmed. Never heard of it? ....I'm not surprised.

This P-Town is also the best Peterborough on the planet (no wonder it was named 10th coolest town in the U.S. in some fancy-shmancy magazine. Beat that UK!)

West P-Town rules. WP-T! (Not to be confused with Wet Paper-Towels).

Brad Pitt: "Want to head on over to Peterborough (which I hear is home to lots of cool people) for some partying?

Tom Cruise: "Hell yeah! It's much better than Hollywood and that town in the UK! Just let me grab my Scientology book first..."

A town in Lincolnshire. The place all under 15s from Spalding think of as heaven. The home to almost every foreign family in the surrounding area. The only place with a few half decent nightclubs out of pboro Spalding and Boston. High daylight stabbing rate. The only half-posh bit in it is Waitrose.

Oh and it has a football club 🤷🏼 ♀️
Two girls from Spalding talking about going out to Peterborough at the weekend.

Stephanie- “You going up ptown at the weekend?”
Melanie- “Course bbs, wouldn’t miss the stickiness on the bottom of my shoe all day for anything”
