It is ranked alongside transport hubs from Norwich to Ecuador in the list.

Built in the late 1960s the building has divided Prestonians and is now grade II listed.

The Bus Station had been due to be demolished as part of the failed Tithebarn scheme, but after this was abandoned it was eventually listed in 2013.

Preston City Council transferred ownership of the building to Lancashire County Council, who are preparing to spend millions on a repair scheme as well as building a Preston Youth Zone on its western apron.
