Fabulous tour around the hall. The volunteers were very informative and showed my son secret doors and explained their relevance. Very friendly staff throughout. Lovely grounds and woodland trails. Well worth a visit!

Towneley Hall has a wide range of facilities for all families, a cracking day out and whilst there is a charge for entry and car parking it is good value for money.

Always beautiful up Townley. Being from Burnley I'm very proud of it. The hall is well worth a visit but you after pay!! Burnley residents used to enter free but not anymore. The grounds are lovely. There's a cafe there? Well worth a visit.

Response from Towneley | Property representative |
The cafe is a private business and not run by the hall, I do not think they allow dogs in the cafe,but lots of dog walkers sit outside on the terrace and are welcome.
