    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.
