A city very much built around its university, Preston offers a selection of night clubs and bars to suit every taste. The city centre is small enough to enjoy in full in an afternoon, whilst visits to the outskirts offer the opportunity to visit retail parks, the city's two cinemas and a variety of chain restaurants. Preston's marina is well worth a visit for a scenic quiet walk

Preston's Harris Museum and Art Gallery adjoin the city's main library, and nearby Avenham Park is a beautiful place to spend a summer afternoon complete with an on-site cafe, a Japanese garden and beautiful walking trails. The Frog and Bucket comedy club is a popular, cheap choice for the evening, and the Giddy Kids Play Area in Ribbleton is the North West's biggest indoor play centre for the city's younger visitors.

Other attractions include the Guild Hall Theatre, staging a variety of shows throughout the year, and the Trax go-karting centre by the docklands. Preston's perfect for a day trip or a longer stay, and offers great business facilities if you're unfortunate enough to have to work. To enjoy everything on offer, book accommodation in Preston and get a great deal with iknow.
