Brockholes floating visitor centre on a sunny day in Preston, Lancashire.

Fun filled family activities in the heart of Lancashire.

Venture into the city centre and you'll find a wealth of indoor activities to keep the whole family occupied. From high adrenaline themed fun, such as trampoline and inflatable parks, to your usual entertainment classics, including cinemas, escape rooms, laser tag and ten-pin bowling. 

If it's outdoor activities you're after, Preston boasts a number of fantastic parks and gardens ready to be explored, with, perhaps, Avenham and Miller Parks being the green jewel in the city's crown with one of the finest examples of Victorian era parks in the country. Or, take a step back in time and delve into the city's past with a number of heritage tours and trails. If you'd prefer to pedal about, then be sure to take a ride along the Guild Wheel - a diverse 21-mile route providing the perfect opportunity for a challenging and enjoyable day of cycling. Alternatively, you can enjoy Preston's surrounding scenery from the comfort of your carriage with a ride on a heritage steam train at Ribble Steam Railway located on Preston Docks - the city's historical waterfront.

Whatever you fancy doing, you can be sure Preston will offer a fantastic fun filled day out.
