Burnley Mini Guide

What do People Visit Burnley for?
It’s mostly people who are interested in its industrial heritage. There are many restored mills and factories from the time when Burnley was one of the world’s largest cloth manufacturers. Others go there for the nightlife which is renowned across the north. Going back further in time, there’s a lot of ancient history in the area including iron and Bronze Age remains. It is thought that town may have had some Roman influence as it is on the road to a nearby Roman fort.

How do I get to Burnley?
You can get there by catching a plane to Manchester Airport but it may be cheaper to consider Liverpool Airport, especially if you want to use a budget airline. From the airport, regular trains make stops in the town and it’s also possible to get a bus from the airport too. If you want to arrive by train, Burnley is just off the west coast line with easy access from Birmingham and the West Midlands.

What Should I do and see in the Town?
Burnley was important in the creation of wealth that helped develop the Victorian era. Monuments to this importance include the restored mills and factories that line the canal here. Whilst dark and sombre looking, they give a good impression of what life must have been like for the workers, some as young as five, that toiled there. For a more refreshing activity, Britain’s longest footpath, the Pennine Way passes only miles from the city. Drive out to it (it’s readily signposted!) and walk amongst some of Britain’s most dramatic scenery. Back in Burnley, the city runs a 'Green Flag' scheme, similar to the Blue Flag awards for beaches, that rewards the cleanliness and facilities of its many parks. Choose a park that has an award and you're assured of a good time.

What’s the Local Tipple and Where can I get it?
You might imagine that it’s some form of beer but if you visit the Burnley Miner’s Club you’ll find the most popular drink being Benedictine whose popularity stemmed from World War I. It’s thought that more of the drink is consumed here than in any other establishment in the world!

Latest Update from Burnley:

20/04/12 - Burnley has just called for tenders to help develop a two hectare 'knowledge park' which will help marry expanding hi-tech businesses with the research and development facilities of the university campus adjacent to the site.

21/02/13 - If you're in Burnley over the summer half term period, take the kids to the Queen Street Mill Textile Museum for mornings of fun with art and crafts. Costing only £2 a child you can leave them there and go and enjoy a coffee in the museum's cafe.

Burnley’s attractions centre on its industrial past and it has many restored mills and factories from the era which are open to the public as museums and galleries. The visitor can also take trips along the Leeds and Liverpool Canal as it passes the wharves of the factories.
