At Burnley Football Club, we always look forward to welcome new fans to Turf Moor, but we realise it can be a little daunting attending your first match.
Below is a quick guide of how to buy tickets, some tips for when you arrive in Burnley and what you can expect in the run-up to your first match.
Burnley is surrounded by hills and moorland and is located on the edge of an area of outstanding natural beauty. You can walk around Towneley Hall which is a 15 minute walk from the stadium, here you can explore Lancashires history through characters from the past, visit the extensive woodlands, gardens and parks within which the hall is sitauted. Feeling more active why not take a stroll or a ride through some of the many parks and gardens in the area, several of which are right on the doorstep of Turf Moor. Feeling more cultured? then perhaps enjoy a theatre performance at The Mechanics and or visit exhibitions of sculptures and paintings at Gawthorpe Hall.
The iconic Singing Ringing Tree which stands high above Burnley on Crown Point Moor and has been named in the top 10 pieces of ‘sound art’ in the world. You can enjoy the splendid views over the town to the hills beyond make a visit for a closer inspection of this amazing artwork an absolute must.
