There’s something for everyone in the magazine which showcases the lifestyle offer in and around the town, featuring places to visit, up and coming events and activities for all the family.
There are stories to inspire all ages, featuring successful young Burnley entrepreneurs taking the fashion industry by storm, next generation digital leaders, and inspirational sportsmen and women.
Burnley is changing – new businesses are moving in, new homes are being built, and a new direct rail line to Manchester opened in 2015. The town is centrally located on the national motorway network and we are surrounded by stunning countryside.
Did you know Burnley is 80% rural? Just a couple of minutes’ drive from the heart of the town centre and you are in the stunning Pennine hills, which attract walkers, cyclists and horse riders – with a variety of cosy country accommodation for that weekend getaway.
Traditional English villages lie on the outskirts of the town offering a rural lifestyle yet just minutes from the bustling town centre and transport links. Our Village Life and At Home With features highlight that country lifestyle offer on our doorstep.
For the foodies out there – we are delighted to bring you two mouth-watering bistro features focussing on two families with a passion for food, who are serving up delicious dishes in their respective Burnley Bistro’s and topping the Trip Adviser foody charts!
If fashion and textiles are more your passion, our Fashion, Textile, Hair and History feature, will inspire you to get out that sewing machine and create.
Too leisurely for you? If something a little more strenuous spikes your interest, our Let’s Ride feature could get you back on that saddle, or for something a little gentler, our Quintessential Bowling feature may encourage you to get out on to those crown greens. Whatever your choice Burnley has a great outdoor activity offer.
Whatever your penchant you’ll find something tosuit here in Burnley.
Named Friendliest Place in the UK in 2016 you can be assured of a friendly welcome – we look forward to welcoming you.
