Out of Town Guests

Traveling? Here’s All The Info You Need!

We’re excited to be having our wedding in Peterborough, but we know a lot of our guests are from out of town. We’ll be keeping this page up to date with all the information you need to enjoy both the wedding and the town hosting it.


We’ve booked a block of rooms at Motel 6 Peterborough for our guests. Rooms are $69.99 and you can book under Murphy or Verhoeven Wedding. There are 20 rooms available and you must book by August 20th! The sooner you book the sooner we’ll know if we need to block off more rooms.

313 Water St.

The city of Peterborough is a big fan of its downtown region, and for good reason! The downtown features many restaurants and shops to check out. Be sure to park at one of the many parking garages downtown and explore the different store fronts by foot.

Lansdowne Place

645 Lansdowne St. West

This is THE mall for Peterborough. If you need to pick up any last minute items, you’ll find them here.

Galaxy Cinemas Peterborough

320 Water St.

Want to take in a movie while in town? Then you’ll want to head over to the Galaxy Cinemas. Looking at the release calendar you have The Maze Runner opening on September 19th. Check it out and let us know how it is when you see us the day after!

Peterborough Lift Lock

354 Hunter St E

They don’t call Peterborough the Lift Lock City for nothing! One of only two hydraulic lift locks on the Trent-Severn Waterway, Lock 21 is the highest hydraulic lift lock in the world.



313 Water St.

The downtown is worth mentioning again for all its great restaurants. If you’re in town for three days you could easily experience a different restaurant for each meal. Or you could take in a drink at one of the many pubs or bars.

Reggie’s Hotgrill

Located in East City this burger joint is a personal favourite of Ryan’s. Want the best burger in town? Best give Reggie’s a try then!
