Preston (Lancs) facilities

During the era of coaches, Preston had become an important centre for postal traffic travelling from London to Scotland, which helped fuel the Lancashire economy, and this importance contributed to the development of the rail network around Preston. Passengers soon followed and the station, opened in 1838, became a popular rest-stop for those heading to the Highlands of Scotland. As a result, the station’s restaurant grew increasingly busy, and during both World Wars provided free meals for servicemen. The subscription funded Free Buffet Association served over 12 million cups of tea between 1939 and 1945 alone!

Preston has numerous places of interest just outside the station for you to explore, all within walking distance.
