Burnley’s Turf Moor is a great place to watch football. Everyone is close to the action and the fans always create a good atmosphere.
For many supporters however, the game is only part of the matchday experience.
For that reason, we’ve put together a handy list of some of the best places in the town centre to soak up the atmosphere before and after matches. Keep reading for some inspiration!
1. The Loom
The perfect place to warm up before kick-off, The Loom runs a ‘Matchday Special.’
