Fresh air and wide open spaces
If you love the great outdoors, Preston certainly isn't short of green spaces, parks, and nature reserves.
The charming Georgian setting of Winckley Square is the ideal place to escape from the crowds and enjoy a quiet lunch.
Preston's Victorian Parks, Avenham and Miller are set on the banks of the River Ribble. The tranquil surroundings make these parks perfect for a quiet stroll and fresh air. Be sure to visit the Japanese garden or grab a coffee in the Pavilion Café.
Avenham Park also marks the start of the scenic Guild Wheel - a 21-mile cycling greenway. It connects the city to the countryside going past the scenic Preston Marina. Also on the way is Brockholes nature reserve. It is home to a diverse range of wildlife as well as a unique floating visitor village.
The stunning Beacon Fell Country Park is 10 miles from the city and boasts 300 acres of magnificent woodland to explore.
