Our Going on a date: City Centre datestone walk which is a lively, fun, interesting activity to do in Preston’s historic centre, for individuals and for families spanning the generations. Here is a link to the Datestone Locations but don’t cheat and download this before you go on the walk – that would be far too easy! ENJOY.
