Preston’s Harris Museum and Art Gallery was seen from all angles on Monday evening for the first InstaMeet in the city.

Photographers, both professional and amateur, took a trip up to the roof and into some of the parts of the museum the public can’t normally go to.

Below are a selection of the pictures posted by those who attended that caught our eye

Getting into the detail

As pointed out by the museum staff it is a sign of Victorian times just how much detail is put into the building – even in areas where the public wouldn’t go to.

The very top of the Harris Museum in #Preston!

Getting access to the roof of the Harris was a real highlight and on such a beautiful day the view was breathtaking.

Plus you could spot plenty of other Preston buildings, here is what we saw

Walk like an Egyptian

The light was perfect for seeing the top floor of the Harris, the Egyptian balcony.

Tours every other week can take you up here but we had a private viewing to get some pictures.

A fantastic view of the Flag Market and one of the best vistas in the city down to Friargate awaited

We’ll be hoping to organise another InstaMeet in the near future, keep eyes peeled on Blog Preston for details.
