Preston was made a city in 2002 becoming England's 50th city on the jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II's reign.

Preston is the home of the UK's military aircraft design, development and manufacture which accounts for much of its overall economic profile. Call centres for technology firms are a rising area of growth for the city.
