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.

Thank you for your support.
