Tours from Preston around the UK. Creating Memories.

Welcome to Preston Adventures!  Discover the best the UK has to offer with a range of day trips and tours throughout the academic year, in partnership with UCLan Students’ Union. From historical cities to stunning mountain trails and even adrenaline-fuelled roller coaster rides – whatever makes you smile, there is an experience for you.

Our adventures aim to give you an experience you will remember at the best possible price. Our guides give lots of information about the places we visit, local recommendations, competitions, free time to explore and most of all – fun!

We are operated by Smile Adventures Limited, and proud to announce that we were awarded the Trip Advisor ‘Travelers’ Choice 2020′ Award for consistently excellent reviews.

We are proud to be operating under the Visit England ‘We’re Good to Go’ Scheme. 

Whilst many legal restrictions have now been removed, we’d like to assure you that we are still doing everything possible to run our tours in a safe way, so that everybody can feel comfortable and have a great time.


  • Although face masks are no longer a legal requirement – we still recommend that everybody brings one to wear on the coach, as it is still a sensible precaution in closed environments – and can make others feel more comfortable. Hand sanitiser is still provided on boarding the coach, and we kindly ask all passengers to use it.
  • Now that there is no longer a requirement for social distancing on coaches – please be aware that if you are booking as a single individual, there is a possibility you will be seated next to another passenger if the tour is busy. We will always try to space people out, when space is available.
  • If you prefer to have a double seat for yourself – we suggest booking your own ticket and also a child ticket, which will allow you 2 seats for a slightly reduced price, rather than needing to book 2 full adult places.
  • Food establishments in all our destinations are now much more freely available, due to easing of restrictions – but a packed lunch can still be a great idea if you prefer it!

Many thanks for your understanding.

Let the adventures begin!
