Preston Guild Wheel


34 km / 21 miles
The Preston Guild Wheel is a 21 mile walkway and cycleway that encircles Preston, linking the city to the countryside and bringing the benefits of a beautiful outdoor space to the city perimeter.

It was created as a lasting legacy to celebrate the 2012 Preston Guild and benefit 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. From the beautiful woodland areas at Red Scar Wood and Boilton Wood in the east, alongside the gently meandering River Ribble to the south of the city and the historic splendour of the docklands area, the Guild Wheel offers something for all.
