Wild about Burnley

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.
