West Town, Peterborough

West Town is residential area of the city of Peterborough, Cambridgeshire in the United Kingdom. For electoral purposes it forms part of Peterborough West ward.

The War Memorial Hospital, which opened near here in 1928, was transferred to the National Health Service in 1948, coming under No. 12 Group (Peterborough and Stamford Hospitals Management Committee) of the East Anglian Regional Hospitals Board. Also transferred were Thorpe Hall (maternity 1943–1970), The Gables (maternity 1947–1970), the Smallpox Hospital (1884–1970), Isolation Hospital (1901–1981), and St. John's Close (mentally ill c.1930–1971). The Memorial Hospital was enlarged by the massive addition of Peterborough District Hospital, built in continuous phases between 1960 and 1968.

West Town County Primary School is located in the area; secondary pupils attend nearby Jack Hunt School in Netherton.
