Snuggled between England’s coastal plains and moorlands lies Preston, a lush region that has conserved its natural heritage exquisitely. At its peak is Beacon Fell, on the hem of the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The River Ribble snakes through the plains, which are cheerful and lavish enough to resemble Tolkien’s beloved Hobbiton. Its wealth of history is put on display at its three main museums – the Harris Museum showcases historical art, while the interactive Museum of Lancaster caters for the young and young at heart.
Preston’s docks are as much a destination as they are a way to get to your next destination. Spend a day wandering between the cafes and stores at the water’s edge before visiting the Turbary Woods Owl and Bird of Prey sanctuary. Preston is a hiker’s and biker's paradise, and the Guild Wheel keeps you far enough from the highways to truly immerse you. Cuerden Valley Park is a biker’s wonderland, complete with monthly events for visitors.
