Preston’s booming with city’s development

This week Lancashire Evening Post came down to Winckley Square Hotel to talk to our company director Max Walker-Williams. They discussed all the exciting developments that are happening in the city, and how our hotels No.10 Preston & Winckley Square Hotel are attracting celebrity guests to Preston.

Max has a big belief in the vibrancy of the city, he is also investing in a new development of residential apartments in Glovers Court and is refurbishing Grade II-listed Gorst House in Winckley Square into high-end apartments with a gym. The success of our hotel have also been an encouragement to open more hotels in the North West later on this year.

He said: “It’s really coming on leaps and bounds. Progress has been slow at first, but one place opens, then another, and it’s only going to get better.“If people have confidence in Preston, then it breeds confidence. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy.

At Walker&Williams we like to be a little bit different, we were behind the love hearts down fishergate in February 2018, and the snow machines on Theatre Street over Christmas. This brought a lot of publicity to our city with the ITV news reporting on it and local press coming down to Preston to report on the story.

Max says he’s noticed a change in attitude towards investment in the city centre.

“People can see that Preston is on the up and money is coming in.”

Winckley Square Hotel & No.10 Preston have been a popular addition to Preston and have given visitors an opportunity to experience a choice of 28 differently themed apartments, all with the highest quality Hypnos Beds, Full Sky and Molton Brown toiletries.

Your room awaits….
