Inside Preston Bus Station
Preston Bus Station was built in 1968 in the Brutalist architectural style. It was threatened with demolition as part of the City Council's Tithebarn redevelopment LinkExternal link but there was public opposition to the plans. After two failed attempts it was granted Grade II listed building status in 2013.

The station has a capacity for 80 duuble-decker buses, 40 along each side of the building. It incorporates a five floor multi-storey car park with space for 1100 cars. Access to the town centre is via three subways.

Ownership has now passed to Lancashire County Council, whose refurbishment plans include a new youth centre at the far end of the forecourt.
