If you fancy seeing a show, the historic Burnley Mechanics Theatre is the place to go. From live music and comedy to dance and musicals, their schedule of events has something for everyone.

Across town, the latest blockbusters can be watched at Pioneer Place’s Reel Cinema. Featuring seven screens, it’s the perfect place to see new releases and films of the moment.

Elsewhere, Burnley’s many parks are perfect for a lunchtime stroll or weekend wander, while the Singing Ringing Tree is a must-see!

You can delve into the past at either Gawthorpe Hall or Towneley Hall too, and don’t forget to check out the meandering Leeds and Liverpool canal.

Burnley also caters for those who like to stay fit! With swimming pools, gyms, fitness classes and great sports facilities, there are plenty of options for sports-lovers.

Don’t forget to check out the offering from Burnley Leisure either!

Heading slightly out of town, it’s a paradise for walkers, runners and cyclists. There are various routes and trails to discover, many with glorious views of the countryside.

If you do decide to venture slightly further afield, make sure you pop into Burnley afterwards for some well-earned refreshments.
