Seven places to grab some ice cream in Peterborough

From park kiosks to dessert lounges to a family-run ice cream hire business, there are plenty of tips on where to head next time the warm weather kicks in?

Willow Cafe
By far the most popular among Peterborough Matters readers, the Central Park cafe offers some mouth-watering Disotto flavours. Toffee and butterscotch? Tutti frutti? Blue bubblegum? Or maybe a good old-fashioned chocolate cone. Yum!

Itter Park kiosk
The Kiosk is a family-run business in Walton's Itter Park and it got plenty of support from our readers! Grab a Mr Whippy ice cream and top it with your favourite flavour - strawberry, chocolate, or maybe even lime?

Creations Dessert Lounge
The Burghley Road dessert lounge is a sit-down venue with plenty of sundaes to enjoy. Using inspiration from chocolate treats and fruity flavours, Creations is the second highest rated dessert place in Peterborough.

KaspasKaspas on Bridge Street, Peterborough

Kaspas Peterborough
Take a seat at the Bridge Street dessert lounge and enjoy a packed ice cream sundae. There are plenty of other desserts on offer too, from waffles to milkshakes, but the extensive ice cream menu prompted two readers to cast their vote for Kaspas.

Double Bubble Rivergate
Rolled ice cream is on the menu at Double Bubble - and there are even vegan options! With its oh-so-Instagrammable look and snack favourite flavours (Jaffa Cakes! Nutella! Popping candy!) this Thai-style delicacy is worth a try!

Heavenly Desserts
Definitely a place to try new things! As well as Italian gelato and sundaes, Heavenly Desserts offers mochi (gelato balls with a thin doughy outer layer) in pistachio, salted caramel, mango and coconut flavours. Not quite a venue for a quick grab and go cone, take your time and enjoy.

Adam Ices Dessert
Adam Ices offer ice cream van hire for events across Peterborough, but also delivers dessert to your door. Registered with local authorities for 30 years, the business is a Peterborough staple.
