Towneley Hall is open to the public with COVID safe measures in place. Our opening hours are (from 2nd October): Saturday to Tuesday, 11-4 (last entry at 2.30pm). Until then we remain open Saturday to Thursday.

To manage visitor numbers Towneley Hall will be operating a booking system for people to enter the hall. Please book your visit with us here:

A one-way system has been introduced with floors signs and a map to help navigate around our beautiful building. Screens, hand sanitizer and frequent cleaning have also been introduced to help keep visitors safe.

From all our staff and volunteers, thank you for your continued support during these difficult times.
