If you have a taste for city life, then you’re ideally situated for enjoying the best in the great-value North West! The university cities of Lancaster and Preston are right on your doorstep, with a great choice of student oriented activities and entertainment. You’re also within easy reach of Liverpool and Manchester for great shopping! Blackpool is also close by, offering year-round entertainment; funfairs, shows and everything you could wish for at a great British seaside resort!

In fact, as a partner college of the University of Central Lancashire, you can use all the facilities in their £6.5 million Students’ Union - including Source Bar.

You’ll find far more information about all the activities at the Students’ Union in Pluto, the student newspaper and Frequency, the university radio station, both of which are available online.

For a slightly slower pace of life the ever-popular ‘Owd Nell's Tavern and Guys thatched hamlet is a popular hang-out just down the road from College. The nearby village of Bilsborrow, and traditional market town of Garstang, offers a range of pubs, eateries and shops.
