Cottage rentals in Preston, Lancashire, England
Preston is a Lancashire city with a lot to offer for self-catering breaks. Its industrial past has left a legacy of listed buildings and today’s visitors will also gain from the city’s reputation as a shopping hub. It offers plenty of culture and family activities too. Harris Museum and Art Gallery has a fine collection of artworks but also houses local history artefacts, glassware, textiles and costumes, whilst hosting events for the kids. If you’ve got a soft spot for railway history, visit the steam locomotive collection at the volunteer-run Ribble Steam Railway. You’ll also discover the history of Preston Docks. Of course, riding on a train through the old dock area and by the River Ribble is a highlight. Preston is fortunate in having lots of green spaces, including two adjacent parks, namely Avenham Park and Miller Park, located not far from Preston’s city centre. Enjoy the facilities and take a riverside walk whilst on your cottage holiday.
