Needs to be in General really hun! :thumbsup:

Nearest I've ever been to Preston is Bolton, ex boyfriend used to live there - from what I gather Bolton was quite cheap (well houses were anyway!)

I was always under the (possibly naive!) impression that the further north you go, the cheaper stuff is.... ?? Probably wrong though!

Erm - Lancaster or Lancashire...

as Lancaster Uni is in, erm, Lancaster, whereas the Univeristy of Central Lancashire is in preston...

Which is, erm, okay, reasonably priced, a bit of a dump - theres a decent town centre, pubs etc...

Although this is fairly accurate, it is a false economy as you have to travel further - hence incurring more expense.

Travelling from Leicestershire to Lancashire would cost more than you'd save on the shopping :P

I know it well! I went there, spent my time in the Computing and Technology building on Fylde road which is just up from Marsh!

The nightlife is good, when i left they were building a brand new state of the art students union, so hopefully that should be done now! There's some alright clubs in Preston itself, which is about 10 mins walk from where you will be, and there's something for everyone pretty much!

As Ian said, parts of it are a bit of a dive, but the uni run student buses to get you home safe and sound so its not too bad!

Oh and Lia, watch out for guys wearing t-shirts which say "Feel A Little Fresher" on Fresher's week! ;)

You have been warned! :P

I've only been once, just watching Everton in Sir Davey's return (which we lost 1-0 :crybaby: ), I'd recommend a trip to Deepdale if you're into that sort of thing, very nice ground & the national football museum is tremendous.
