Towneley Hall Art Gallery and Museum

Towneley Hall is a magnificent historic house, art gallery and museum all wrapped up into one. Located in over 400 acres of beautiful parkland, it provides all the ingredients for a fun, educational and adventurous day out in Burnley. 

 

The Towneley family lived in the Hall for over 600 years. From the priest’s hideaway hole in the attic to the Victorian Kitchen, Towneley Hall is fascinating with period rooms from across the centuries. Uncover the family’s dramas, triumphs and tragedies as you wander through the corridors. Imagine the glamorous parties held in the regency rooms, marvel at elaborate bedrooms dating from the 1500s or have a quiet moment in the chapel.  

 

Museum lovers will enjoy an eclectic collection of art and artefacts ranging from wildlife taxidermy to local history; Egyptology to ornate textiles, decorative art and regional furniture. 

 

Complete with a modern café in the old coach house, a trip to Towneley Hall is a fun-filled day out.
