Burnley is surrounded by rolling hills and vast moorland and is located on the edge of an area of outstanding natural beauty. You can stroll around Towneley Hall with characters from the past and rooms covering several centuries of life at the hall, or take part in fun runs through Padiham Greenway. Enjoy a theatre performance in the Grade II listed building The Mechanics or visit exhibitions of sculptures or paintings at Gawthorpe Hall.
Unwind and enjoy Burnley’s waterways – the canal, rivers and reservoirs are great places to escape to; walk by the river, take a boat trip along the canal or go windsurfing or sailing on the reservoirs. From Reedley Marina to Hapton Boat Yard via the Weavers’ Triangle this part of the canal is a fascinating place to visit.
The iconic Singing Ringing Tree which towers high above Burnley on Crown Point Moor and has been named in the top 10 pieces of ‘sound art’ in the world. The sculpture is a three metre tall, wind powered musical sculpture made of galvanized steel pipes. The vast views over the town to the hills beyond make a visit for a closer inspection of this breathtaking artwork an absolute must.
The Woodland Spa at Crow Wood Leisure has been voted the best in Britain – just one year after opening. Set within 100 acres of stunning Pennine Lancashire countryside with its undulating landscape, ancient woodland and lush pasture, there is a true sense of intimacy and calm surrounding the beautiful Woodland Spa.
