Preston Guild City

Guild Wheel

Enjoy a circular route around Preston and the surrounding countryside...

The Guild Wheel is a 21-mile walking and cycling route, encircling Preston and providing a link from the city to the countryside.

Start and finish point

The official start and finish of the Guild Wheel is the Pavilion Café in Avenham Park - which formed an integral part of the most recent Guild celebrations in 2012.

Mixing urban with rural

The Preston Guild Wheel is a great way to make the most of the many forms of landscapes that make this city what it is – by rambling river and canal sides to ancient woodland, city centre parkland, historic docklands and attractive nature reserves.

Full route or quick cycle, your choice...

The Guild Wheel is a must for all outdoor activity and biking enthusiasts. So, whether you fancy making a day of it by challenging yourself to the full route, or prefer jumping in at one of the main entry points for a quick cycle, you can be sure this impressive ‘greenway’ won't disappoint. Whatever direction you’re heading and for whatever length, the Guild Wheel makes an enjoyable day or afternoon out.

There are also a large number of other cycle routes in and around Preston. For more information see Cycling in Preston.
