Manchester Victoria to re-open/West Coast mainline disruption Mon 29 May
There are plenty of museums and parks to enjoy on your visit to Preston. Whether you are interested in having a picnic in the park, wandering around art galleries or travelling on an old fashioned steam train, you can be sure to find something to excite you whatever your age.
Although there are a lot of parks in Preston, there are none that can compete with the beautiful Avenham Park. Featuring a Japanese garden, a 1960's replica tramway bridge and historic structures such as The Belvedere, it is not hard to see why this is such a popular place for people looking for a relaxing and peaceful place to visit in Preston.
Once arriving in Preston by train you could be forgiven for thinking that the last thing you would want to do is get on another train. However, this is no ordinary train. A visit to the Ribble Steam Railway is a fun filled day out for the family and provides an opportunity to travel on a traditional steam powered engine train, embarking on a 3 mile journey.
Situated in a beautiful Grade I listed building, the Harris Museum and Art Gallery could keep you busy for an entire day. With decorative and fine art collections, as well as exhibitions and touring shows you can be sure to see something that will leave you feeling amazed.
Musicals, comedy, ballet, orchestra; a sparkling array of shows to keep you entertained after the sun has gone down in Preston.Buy tickets
