When deciding where to go for university Preston was somewhere I hadn't contemplated. However, I had an offer through clearing and went to see it and knew that it would be the city for me. How to get there --------------------- There's a train station in the city centre, it has direct links to towns such as Manchester, Leeds and London.

Living in Preston has it`s ups and downs, one major up is our brilliant newly promoted Preston North End football club.

There are lots of nightclubs and loads of pubs, but they are always packed and you will wait ages to be served. ... Read the complete review
