How to Get to Burnley by Train

The town of Burnley is served by trains operated by Northern Rail, taking passengers to the town from Blackpool North and Colne. The line bringing passengers to Burnley from Blackpool North passes through the major interchange station of Preston - one of the main stations for the West Coast main line operated by Virgin Trains, which links the north west of England and Scotland with London Euston.


Burnley is a historic town located in the county of Lancashire close to the major cities of Preston and Manchester. The town witnessed huge population increases and extensive development as part of the Industrial Revolution, with many of the buildings and former textile mills still intact and mixed in with many more modern buildings within the town. Burnley is located close to the historic Pendle Hill, which is famous in British history for the witch trials and various Halloween festivities which take place in the region. Burnley itself lies within a valley formed by the convergence of three rivers. The steep hills bring the rural areas of the moors close to the city centre, allowing for a host of outdoor activities to take place within a few miles of the city centre. A unique sound sculpture known as The Singing Ringing Tree is also located in the Pennines just two miles outside Burnley.
