Add Preston Guild Wheel to your Itinerary

Preston Guild Wheel
The Preston Guild Wheel is a 21 mile "Greenway" that encircles the city of Preston, linking the city to the countryside. It is both a walking and cycling route. Built by Lancashire County Council with the support of Preston City Council and the significant input of volunteers from the Guild Wheel Users Group, the Guild Wheel creates a lasting legacy that not only marks the 2012 Preston Guild, but provides a valuable and on-going commemoration of the Guild, benefitting Preston residents and visitors alike for years to come. The Guild Wheel route makes the most of the different landscapes that surround the city, creating a rich and varied environment for everyone to enjoy.
To the south of the city, it takes you alongside the gently meandering River Ribble, past ancient woodland, historic city centre parks, the larget nineteenth century dock in Europe and Brockholes Nature Reserve by the M6. Other highlights of the route include the Ribble Link Canal and the woodlands area at Longsands.
