Modern shopping and dining in a period setting...
Miller Arcade, Preston’s first indoor shopping centre, was constructed in 1899 and modelled on the larger Burlington Arcade in London. This architectural gem still remains an attraction, more than a century on.
Standing proud as a Grade II listed Victorian building, Miller Arcade has many grand period features. Step inside where you will find ornate tiling, vintage shop fronts, high glass-panelled ceilings, and many benches to view it all from. The building's bygone charm makes it easy to imagine what it was like 100 years ago.
Once home to Victorian Turkish Baths, and even featuring in the 1962 film 'A Kind of Loving', Miller Arcade is now home to a small selection of independent and well known shops, restaurants, and bars. The arcade is well worth a visit for both shoppers and those who appreciate history and architecture. It also makes a great place to meet friends, read a book, or enjoy a few quiet moments of reflection.
