The history of Preston Park
Preston Park has a long and rich history. Home to one of Brighton’s oldest churches, St Peter’s, you can take in the remarkable fourteenth-century wall paintings whilst visiting this heritage landmark.
With a 63-acre park comprised of lawns, tennis courts, a small pond, a bowling green, and beautiful rose gardens, this is certainly somewhere to relax and rejuvenate.
The area’s most famous landmark is Preston Manor, situated on the edge of Preston Park. This manor house was home to the Stanford family, the richest family in Sussex for over 200 years, before they donated the house and many of the valuable collections, to the city of Brighton to become a museum.
