Fit riverside walks and drinks by the docks around your studies in this northern city rich with Roman history
Head to the north west of England and settle down to study in a city that’s played an important part in history as far back as Roman times. When class ends, you can explore the grand columns and arches of the city’s many picturesque Victorian and Georgian buildings. Picnic in the central Avenham Park and wander through its Japanese Garden before sampling cuisines from the city’s many restaurants. Student life in Preston is as varied as it is charming. If you crave the delights of a nearby metropolis, hop on an express train and be in Manchester, a shopping mecca, in around half an hour. You really can enjoy the best of both worlds in this northern haven.
