Read about Preston and its surrounding area on this website.

An account of the talks about the old and ancient inns, taverns and beer houses that have existed in Preston, that have, or will be given in the New Pavilion on Avenham Park in the late summer and autumn of 2013.
The talks will subsequently taken to other venues in the city.  [UCLan].
The Institute of Local and Family History was founded in 2001 to provide training, resources and courses for those with an interest in the history of families and communities in Lancashire, the north west of England, and beyond. We hold regular events throughout the year in Preston and provide access via this website to indexes and other resources created in house by academics and students.

This link should take you to the Flickr 'Preston Pubs' section, which I have happily agreed to support in terms of visual material. The manager's of the site have agreed that any new material obtained by them, may be used on the 'pubsinpreston' site.  There is far more to the above than inns and taverns. It's all things Preston. TAKE A LOOK TODAY.

For all things Preston.

An interesting site that includes a history of this very old hostelry on the outskirts of Preston.

My name is Ben Robinson, I am a reporter at the Lancashire Evening Post, and a dedicated disciple of all things pubs. Here you will find a selection of my musings on some of Lancashire's many fine watering holes. From top real ale venues, to the best sports bars or family facilities, I try to sample them all. You will also find a weekly pub review in the 'What's On' section of the LEP every Friday.

If you have a site that deals with things to do with Preston,

and would like me to add you to this page, just ask.
