Towneley Hall is now open to the public.
During our period of closure staff have been busy working on essential maintenance to the hall, ensuring its place in Burnley’s history for another 600 years. Currently this means the Great Hall is closed whilst we undertake surveys and repairs to the Grade I listed ceiling.
The art galleries are scheduled to open in July, following completion of repairs to ceilings above the Jacobean staircase. To reflect the temporary closure of theses spaces our day admission fee has been reduced to £2.75 per adult. Annual passes are still available for £5.50.
Thank you for your support.
Book your visit via our website to help us maintain social distancing. Hand sanitizer, one way system, social distancing, mask wearing and the NHS track and trace app will all be in use to keep visitors safe. Groups of up to six people or two households can book to visit together.
Towneley Hall historic house, art gallery and museum located in 400 acres of beautiful parkland provides all the ingredients for a fun, educational and adventurous day out.
The magnificent hall, which dates from the 14th Century, contains fine period rooms decorated with oil paintings and sculptures.
The museum houses an eclectic collection including an Egyptian mummy, the Whalley Abbey vestments, Lancashire-made oak furniture, Pilkington Pottery and the Towneley Bear! The art gallery boasts a spectacular collection of oil paintings including works by Sir Lawrence Alma Tadema, John William Waterhouse and Johan Zoffany.
