Situated in the heart of the North West of England, Preston forms part of Lancashire’s beautiful landscape and contemporary developments. Dating back to 1179, Preston combines a rich cultural history with the vibrancy of a modern university city. Despite being a university city, over two thirds of Preston is rural and boasts a picturesque countryside setting.

Some of the things that have made Preston famous include the city being home to Kenny Baker, who played R2-D2 in Star Wars, lightweight boxer Paul Burke, Sir Tom Finney, the former England and Preston North End football player, cricketer Andrew Flintoff, ex footballer and commentator Mark Lawrenson and Nick Park, the Oscar-winning animator and creator of Wallace and Gromit. The first Kentucky Fried Chicken outlet in the UK was opened on Fishergate in Preston.
