Stalls in all areas even up near The Arndale centre, all types of food, ethic stalls, lots of Christmas trees, wreaths and outdoor decorations from wooden toadstools to wicker Reindeer and frosty penguins. I believe parking can be expensive. We travelled from Blackpool at 8.45, on arriving at Preston, the platform was pretty clear, we waited 20 mins, the train was nearly 10 minutes late, loads of people then descended, no consideration for others who had waited 30 mins and were trying to board an already rammed train, we then had to wait another 15 mins for another train which was still jam packed, a 39 min journey then took an hour with me having to stand with two children. Overall markets are good, but if you are travelling I would recommend staying overnight, I certainly will next time.
