    Everything about Student Accommodation Preston

    Preston is a small city and the administrative centre of Lancashire, England. It is not as well-known as other big cities like London and Manchester but has a lot of charm and plenty of places to explore. It is situated on the north bank of the River Ribble and obtained city status in 2002, becoming England's 50th city. Sir Richard Arkwright, the man who invented the innovative spinning frame in the 1700s, was born in this city. The city is also quite famous for having the oldest football league ground in the entire world, the Preston’s Deepdale stadium. The well-known Lake District can also be reached in less than 45-minutes by train. It is home of the heritage Ribble Steam Railway, found in the Riversway area. The city centre is surrounded by sprawling green spaces, wildlife habitats, and beautiful play-areas. For instance, Winckley Square Gardens make a perfectly located peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
    What makes Preston unique? 
    Market Square, popular as the Flag Market is a historic spot located in the heart of the city. The charming square is home to magnificent listed buildings and engrossing wartime history. Here you can discover the Grade I listed Harris Museum to the Grade II listed Old Post Office.  The Harris Museum is the perfect place to spend a rainy day watching the exhibitions and knowing more about the history of the city. Preston has a reputation for offering a safe environment to its citizens, for a great night out at its cocktail, wine bars, pubs and clubs.
    Student accommodation Preston 
    The shortage of student halls of residence owned by the universities, creates a large demand for private student housing in the city. Students looking for residence should make an informed decision about the best student home after visiting various student accommodation sites.

This will help residents cut down on both time and money on their daily commute and also give them some spare time.
    Students can pick from a wide variety of student rooms based on their budget and other preferences – student flat, student apartment, student studio, shared and en-suite rooms. These properties are well-connected by a strong network of roadways to the rest of the city, making it easy to explore other interesting neighbourhoods.
