Town Centre not great
In a nutshell
Not just pie and mash
"Cool and funky, fun and friendly, vibrant and varied are just a few words to describe Burnleyýs pub and club circuit by day and night.
With upwards of 30 pubs and bars in the town centre you will be spoilt for choice! By night the lively bars and clubs attract an evening crowd of trendy new drinkers, residents and workers all looking to relax and enjoy themselves in the modern pub chains such as Chicago Rock, Orange House, JD Wetherspoons, Walkabout and Surfers Paradise, Litten Tree and Yates Wine Lodge."
That's the offical line! Burnley does seem to becoming something of a regional centre for clubs, and old churches and mills are being converted all over the place to clubs.
There are plenty of night clubs to choose from, and between them all there is a massive capacity, drawing reverllers in from surrounding towns.
Just opening in Dec 2003 are new night clubs at Hammerton Street (Lava/Ignite) and a converted church on Queens Lancashire Way.
You should be able to find somewhere that stuas open to 3am, if thet's your thing.

If you’re travelling to or from Burnley to west Yorkshire, the best way to do it is via The Long Causeway.
This is an ancient route, first created in times when it was too dangerous to travel in the valley bottoms due to rouges and bandits.
Travelling this way still has its uses today - there are no traffic lights, the National Speed Limit applies for most of the route, and the views are great. Just don't use it as a short cut when there has been snow in winter - the snow is still lying up here for weeks after it has thawed in the valleys.

League Play In
Claret and blue shirts, white shorts
My first visit to Turf Moor on Tuesday 26th 0ctober 2004 wasn`t a very happy one. I went to watch Villa play Burnley in the Carling Cup. Villa lost embarassingly 3-1 to the lower division side.
The one good thing about it for me was the stand that we sat in, it wasn`t architecturally spectacular or anything, just basic but it was good to get back to the old style stadium with wooden seats. Just like the old days before the sanitized, identikit stadiums started to be built.
Equipment: To watch the match the only equipment you really need is a good strong voice to sing your club`s songs and encourage the team and your eyes to actually watch the game, some people do take a pair of binoculars if they sit far from the pitch.
Apart from the above the club s encourage you to buy their merchandise to enhance your matchday experience, you can buy virtually anything from hats and scarfs to the full blown replica kit, which generally is updated annually.
