Preston is the UK’s most improved city to live and work in
Preston is the third largest city in the North West, and the largest in Lancashire. The city is primed to follow in the footsteps of neighbours Manchester and Liverpool thanks to an extensive programme of investment, outstanding travel connections and a thriving higher education sector which is pushing the city to new heights.
Declared the UK’s most improved city by PricewaterhouseCoopers last year, it is no surprise that Preston is attracting a growing number of young professionals eager to be a part of the growth and take advantage of the enviable lifestyle and job opportunities on offer. In turn, this is pushing house prices up with Zoopla recording a rise of 19.56% in the last five years. This is the ideal time to invest in Preston and get ahead of the curve.
