Preston Mini Guide

Getting to Preston when driving is easy, just follow the M6 motorway link from both Manchester and Birmingham and you can’t miss it. Regular bus connections are available from all major towns and cities and Preston is served by the main train line from London, so rail is also an option.
 
Preston is an interesting city found in the heart of some of Lancashire’s most attractive scenery. In the city, the Museum of Lancashire details the history of the city and the surrounding area with exhibits of its former industries.

If you have hired a car there, another place of interest is the National Football Museum, a fitting home in one of Britain’s oldest and most successful football towns. Next, spend a couple of hours in the British Commercial Vehicle Museum which tells of how commercial transport through the ages helped British industry.
