Preston used to be a village before it became part of the northern end of the city of Brighton. The Stanford family owned farmland at the location, which became a parish in 1928. Land south of Preston Manor was given over and became Preston Park, nowadays a popular site for leisure.
The park is used as a venue for big events such as circuses, fairs and outdoor concerts. It's also popular for family days with football, cricket, basketball, tennis and a cycling velodrome. A gardening club meets at the park and the beautiful flowers are a welcome sight to visitors. Two Elm trees, known as the 'Preston Twins' are believed to be the oldest and largest such trees in the world.
Preston Manor has changed hands many times. The name 'Preston' means 'priest's holding' and a manor owned by the Bishop of Chichester is noted in the Domesday Book. It belonged to various bishops for 470 years and was then owned by the royal family in 1561, leased and then changing hands by several owners. Preston Manor today is a tourist attraction, with a particular focus on previous owners, the Stanford family. There are various myths and folklore about Preston Manor and it's also become a wedding venue.
