Based at Burnley Wharf by the Leeds and Liverpool Canal, the Visitor Centre tells the story of the canal, cotton and the Weavers' Triangle.
Take a trip back in time and visit our Victorian schoolroom, Edwardian bathroom and weaver's dwelling. You can find out how cotton was made and have a go at weaving. There's plenty for children as well - with a children's corner, trails and quizzes and a wonderful working model fairground based on the old Burnley Fair.
Display rooms house changing exhibitions of artwork, crafts and local history. Light refreshments are available in our Victorian Parlour and you can also visit our new gift shop. Next door to the Visitor Centre, The Inn on the Wharf serves a wide range of food and drinks.
