Megan's top 6 places to go in Preston
From Preston's parks and cafes to great nights out and drinks with friends, discover Preston student Megan's top places to visit in Preston.
1. Avenham and Miller Park
Perfect if you need to get away from revision and fancy a walk, run or a chill with friends in the (occasionally) sunny parks. Both Avenham and Miller park are connected and an easy 12 minute walk from campus. The parks are beautiful, with many different pathways, leading on to Preston Docks and the Guild Wheel, great for walking, cycling or skating. Avenham park is home to a riverside café and Holy Grounds, a Preston hot-spot for great coffee and homemade doughnuts.
Level is a great place to catch up with friends, course mates and flatmates. Determine who is the best at crazy golf, bowling or attempt an assault course. Set across multiple levels, Level is an leisure and entertainment venue with activities for everyone, visit Level for:
- Crazy golf
- Laser tag
- Assault course
Visit Townhouse for perfect coffee, beautiful eggs benedict and great staff. I do not think I need to say anything more – it is my favourite place to have brunch, or get some work done. Plus it is located less than 5 minutes' walk from campus, perfect for a pre-lecture pick me up.
A staple amongst Preston students, Coco's is home to amazing food, with friendly staff and a great vibe. I recommend the Jerk Chicken Wrap and chips. Top tip: order the special sauce to go on chips.
5. Cocktail bars in Preston
If you're a big fan of cocktails, some of my favourite places to drink in Preston are Turtle Bay, Baker Street, Wings and Beer or Hartley’s Wine Bar. Cute places, with some cool interiors and a great selection of cocktails.
Warehouse is my favourite club in Preston. Three floors of amazing music, from cheesy pop to every song your emo phase desired. It’s also the only place I know that serves Vodka Vimto that I recommend everyone should try!
