The city centre has a vibrant nightlife with many bars, restaurants, nightclubs, traditional pubs and theatres. By day there are few other towns or cities that can match Preston’s shopping and leisure facilities.
The city is well served for communication being adjacent to motorways
- M6 for destinations north and south

The Railway service is second to none as Preston is a Principal Station on the west coast mainline and also serves as a hub for Lancashire towns with regular services to Liverpool, Manchester and its Airport.
