Relax and enjoy the scenery by the river...

Sat in Preston’s picturesque Avenham and Miller Parks, and the official starting point for the Guild Wheel, the Pavilion Café provides the ideal location for a refreshing drink and fresh food.

With free Wi-Fi, the café makes an inspirational setting for work or recreational internet surfing. Its large glass windows create a bright interior and provide the perfect view of Avenham Park’s beauty spots. With an outdoor seating area next to the River Ribble, you’re also provided with a tranquil spot to put your feet up and take in your surroundings.

Relax with the café's large selection of hot and cold drinks, including wines and beers for those sunny days or special occasions. There’s also classic tasty lunch options and children’s meals on offer, not to mention afternoon tea with a view.

Enjoy all this in the adaptable venue; whether it's a thirst-quenching drink, a sit down lunch, or a coffee and cake with your furry friend.

If you're stuck for time, or just fancy a picnic in the park, the Pavilion Café also has its own takeaway menu.
