Preston in Lancashire

One of the attractions in Preston is The Harris Library, Museum and Art Gallery that is located in the center of the town. The building holds a large collection of paintings and watercolors by 19th century British artists, collections of textiles, ceramics and glass and has a fine collection of decorative art, social history and archaeological artifacts.
