About Preston

Preston City used to be a small market town and was recognised as a city back in 2002. During the 14th century, it was known for its booming textile industry, and it became an industrial hub in the 18th and 19th centuries. Its buildings and landmarks are known for their unique architectural design, reflecting the city's rich history. You will witness this marvellous architecture first-hand within the wide range of student residences in the city. The city is known for its guild celebrations that take place every 20 years, a tradition that started in 1179 under Henry II when a guild merchant was established. The city also has a lot of "firsts" that made it famous, especially with how quirky they are, such as being home to the tallest spire of any parish church in England and having the longest continuous row of red telephone boxes.
