Excellent walk into the local history. Excellent interaction from the themed staff in the old highstreet. Great value for money too with the year pass offer on. Very good artifacts and displays right through the history books.

We often go to Preston Park for a walk. You can do a circular walk which takes you past the museum and along the river bank back to the children's play area. It's a lovely place for a walk!
