The skyline of Preston city centre

This list of the tallest buildings and structures in Preston ranks skyscrapers and structures in Preston, England by height. There are currently 12 structures in the city over 150 ft; the majority of these were built in the 1960s and 1970s. Since its completion in 1854 the 308 ft tall Church of St. Walburge has remained the tallest building in Preston. It is also the 8th tallest free-standing structure in North West England (behind various buildings in Manchester, Liverpool and Blackpool), and the tallest church in the United Kingdom (excluding cathedrals). There are currently no buildings under construction or approved for construction that will take the title from it.

Until they were demolished in 1983, the tallest structures in Preston were the twin chimneys of Courtaulds textile factory at Red Scar, Ribbleton. They were 365 feet high.[citation needed]
