Preston, Englands newest city
"A quick overview"
Preston is Englands newest city and is situated in the North West of England in the Red Rose County of Lancashire.

Preston is a multi cultural city with a large Asian community and with a historic sporting background. Here is a link to the Preston tourist site which is full of useful info about our proud city.
