Preston Park (Brighton)

Preston Park is a large urban park at Brighton.

The main entrance is in London Road.

Preston Park was Brighton`s first planned park. It was bought by Brighton Corporation for 50, 000 from William Bennett-Stanford, owner of the Preston Manor estate, in 1883.

There is a walled garden and a rose garden, as well as a Clock Tower, Rotunda and the Tile House.

A very popular feature of the park is the Rookery Rock Garden, one of the largest city-owned rock gardens in Britain.

Two elms in Preston Park are said to be the oldest in Britain.

Preston Park is the official finishing place for the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, the world`s longest running motoring event. It first took place in 1896.
