The city is also located on the West Coast Main Line providing great access to the North West of England. With the optimism that surrounds the city, Preston hopes to position itself as the third most popular destination in the North West, joining Manchester and Liverpool as strong contenders for investment and city living.

Investors and residents will have much to look forward to over the next few years as Preston and surrounding areas within Central Lancashire will enjoy an increase of £1 billion to the local economy through future investments. With students turning into permanent residents of the city due to its regeneration projects, it’s clear to see that the city is turning into an exciting place to live and study, driving up the demand for property investment in Preston.
