About Fulwood Barracks, Preston

Fulwood Barracks is the home to various units with the present occupiers being, 5 Medical Regiment and Headquarters 42 (NW) Brigade. The barracks is also home to the museum of the Queen's Lancashire Regiment.

Fulwood Barracks was the last and largest of a chain of barracks built in the North West in the wake of the Chartist riots of the 1830's. Completed in 1848, today it is the finest and most complete example of mid-Victorian military architecture left in the country.

There is a broad range of pubs, clubs, restaurants and theatres. Beyond the city centre, around one third of Preston is dedicated to open spaces with Victorian parks, woodland, riverside walks and a country park.
