Discover Preston

At university, you'll make friends for life, explore your potential and discover new passions. There are plenty more reasons why you'll love living in Preston too.

You’re really spoilt for choice whenever you want to catch up with friends, enjoy a big night out or hit the shops. Preston really rewards urban explorers who set out to discover its historic side streets which are home to all manner of hidden gems, from offbeat fashion boutiques and quirky bars to independent brasseries, bistros and tapas bars. You’ll also find your favourite restaurants and high street stores here.

Entertainment awaits around every corner. Fun-seekers can enjoy cinemas, bowling alleys, escape rooms, climbing walls, skateparks and much more. When night falls, Preston really comes alive. Neon-lit cocktail bars and speakeasy-style lounges jostle for your leisure time alongside historic taverns and popular nightspots.
