For a great example of a Georgian square in the North of England, look no further than Preston's Winckley Square. This beautiful green space is located in the heart of Preston City Centre, scarcely 50 yards from the main retail district and only 10 minutes from the University, making it a truly charming place to visit and watch the world go by.
A Stunning Green Space With Splendid Period Architecture
Modelled on London’s fashionable quarters of the same era and centred on open gardens, the square is home to some fantastic period architecture.
This was once an exclusive residential area and remains a hidden gem in a revitalised conservation area.
Although now home to Preston’s legal and professional quarter the square retains a strong sense of community and residential identity together with a selection of quality bars and restaurants.
Winckley Square is a great place to dine, picnic, sip a coffee, meet friends and colleagues, or just enjoy a quiet moment of reflection.
But don’t take our word for it, grab a sandwich and a brew, give a nod to Sir Robert Peel’s statue and take in all the Square has to offer.
