Burnley Town Centre
There is no doubt that Britain’s favourite leisure activity is shopping; a little bit of retail therapy seems to make people feel good and a visit to Burnley is ideal for the dedicated shopper looking for that special something to make their day.
Our attractively landscaped pedestrianised town centre has glass covered walkways and atriums which house many of the major high street brands you would expect to see. There is also an excellent choice of specialist shops from galleries and florists to boutiques and gift shops where you can buy beautiful paintings, designer glassware, or exclusive jewellery.
Burnley Markets date back to 1294 and still have a faithful following who love to browse around the Market Hall where you can buy anything from tasty Lancashire Cheese and award-winning black puddings to sewing thread and knitting wool.
Burnley town centre has a growing variety of venues for people looking to have an early morning cuppa or lunchtime drink, somewhere to wind down after work or to simply take a breather from all the retail therapy. A recent explosion of modern trendy coffee shops and pavement cafes all offering a varied day time menu in comfortable and cosmopolitan surroundings means that you will be spoilt for choice – should it be a cappuccino or a cup of earl grey?
By Christmas 2012 the re-development of the Market Square should be completed with larger retail units and a new cafe bringing even more choice to Charter Walk Shopping Centre just in time for the festive season.
