Very good
The Guild Hall & Charter Theatre. Many different culture restaurants and cafe bars The Harris Museum and Art Gallery Avenham Park & Winckley Square. Stay away from the top end of Church Street later at night.

Our visit to Preston was to catch up with relatives so we didn't go anywhere else. Preston is a city we do visit and it has shopping both in the centre and on out of town parks.
