Preston city centre is home to a wealth of parks, gardens and green open spaces to explore. From the stunning Avenham and Miller Parks - one of the finest examples of Victorian era parks in England - and the beautifully restored Winckley Square - a stunning Georgian square with a compelling history to some fantastic nature reserves waiting to be discovered and the Guild Wheel - a 21-mile walking and cycling route, encircling Preston and providing a link from the city to the countryside.

Step outside the city centre and you'll find a wide mix of outdoor activities set in the beautiful rural Lancashire countryside. From Beacon Fell Country Park - one of the oldest country parks in England - to plenty of amazing animal attractions and stunning stately home grounds to wander around, there's plenty of outdoor things to do for all the family.
