Hotels in Preston for business travellers
A business trip to Preston can involve anything from working in state-of-the art country houses and purpose-built conference centres to exploring nearby haunted mansions and nature reserves. A stay in a hotel in Preston also facilitates easy travel to other prominent cities across the region such as Manchester, Liverpool and Leeds.
What can I do away from work?
Preston has a lively cultural scene and numerous nature reserves and parks for when you want to unwind and relax. The Harris Museum and Art Gallery features interesting exhibits on art and local history. For up-and-coming local artists, visit one of the city's art studios such as Oxheys Mill.
Sport enthusiasts may wish to try out Moor Park's various sports facilities, while Avenham & Miller Parks on the other side of the city centre are perfect for lunches and scenic walks. If you have an eye for bargains you will no doubt enjoy browsing Preston's flea market on Tuesdays and Thursdays, perhaps during a break.
What sort of business-related places can I find in Preston?
You will find many hotels offer you purpose-built business facilities such as meeting rooms, conference suites, and in-house technical and catering teams. Your entire workload could be carried out at a countryside lodge or hotel in town, or your work could take you around the city's many trade fairs, University conferences, and Guild Hall business events. Travelling across the wider region to trade shows in cities such as Manchester and Leeds is also simple and straightforward.
Where could I go during my hotel stay in Preston?
Teambuilding activities and fun days out can be arranged by your hotel in Preston and held there if the grounds are extensive enough. Indoor events are also an option: Some hotels, for example, organise quizzes, casino nights, and indoor challenges. Multiple businesses provide corporate team-led activities. Demon Wheelers, for example, can re-create the iconic Crystal Maze and tailor each challenge to suit (or not suit!) your team.
Something just as thrilling for independent travellers is the local “wildlife”, both natural and unnatural! To see hawks and owls up close, visit Turbary Woods Owl and Bird of Prey Sanctuary, and to walk amongst bees and learn about witches and ghosts, head to the beautiful but haunted Samlesbury Hall.
