Awarded city status in 2002 in celebration of the Queen’s 50th year on the throne, Preston is a modern place, which has still managed to retain much of its old Lancastrian charm.
Things to see and do
As you might expect of a modern city, Preston has plenty of attractions to keep visitors entertained. In addition to modern malls and leisure complexes, the city has a variety of museums and exhibitions such as the Harris Museum in the city centre and the National Football Museum at Deepdale, the home of Preston North End FC.
The city benefits from a central location in the North West, meaning that other attractions such as Blackpool, Manchester and Liverpool are all no more than an hour away.
