This secion is here to inspire you on your visit to Preston. If you are looking for a country escape, things to do with the family, want to find out about Preston's heritage or a lively night out we've got some great ideas for days and nights out in Preston.
The itineraries available below have been put together to inspire you and take away some of the work in planning and making the most of your visit to Preston.
Despite being a university city and home to 135,000 people over two thirds of Preston is classed as rural area. If you would like to visit some of Preston’s pretty villages and experience the greener side of the city then the country escapes itinerary provides a useful starting point. Even the children will enjoy this one. Running on grass, through twisting footpaths and trails, hunting treasure such as pines cones, or even the swings!
If the children feel in the mood for more activity based entertainment then the family itinerary will point you in the right direction. If letting the children get hands on at the Harris Museum or clamber about a real steam train sounds like fun this suggested day out might be for you.
You don’t have to be a historian to appreciate the tales, troubles and triumphs of Preston in years gone by. The stories of the people, the place and the public space are evident all around and in the cities collection of museums. If you are would like to know more, just check out the heritage highlights we have put together in this itinerary.
If the forested paths of Beacon Fell and the fine art of the Harris all sound a little too peaceful for the party people out there, then we think this lively itinerary might be more the action packed plan for you.
Karting round chicane bends at 70mph, hitting the shops and cocktails with attitude are all here. We provide the inspiration but the rest is up to you!
