In order to celebrate all that is great about Preston we asked you, our readers, for suggestions of hidden gems in and around the city that show off the very best of our area.
Here’s what you came up with...
5. Ribble Steam Railway and Museum
The museum is home to one of the largest industrial locomotive collections in the country and also details the history of Preston docks and the development of the first electric trains and Preston's part in the design and build of trains.
6. Anglezarke Reservoir
This spot is just part of the great West Pennine Moors and all they have to offer.
7. Turbary Woods Owl and Bird of Prey Sanctuary
The sanctuary on Chain House Lane has a collection of more than 80 birds of prey.
8. Guild Wheel
Again, difficult to categorise this as a hidden gem but it's certainly one of Preston's real stars, the 21-mile circular route showing the very best the area has to offer.
