Housed in a Grade I listed building in the centre of Preston, the Harris runs a major temporary exhibition programme, including contemporary art, alongside permanent displays of fine and decorative art.

The collections are particularly strong on Victorian and 20th-century British painting and 18th-century portraiture. The Harris also has the largest collection of scent bottles in the UK, along with glass, ceramics, textiles and exhibits relating to Preston's history.
