Arriving at Turf Moor from City Centre

Turf Moor is an easy walk from the town centre. It should take no longer than 15 minutes, with clearly signed routes to the ground.

The location of the stadium lends itself to the old-fashioned method of following the crowds. If you need extra help, you will find matchday stewards in place as you venture closer to the ground.

Once a rugby club, Burnley converted to the round-ball game in the 19th century. They were founder members of the Football League and have been top-flight champions twice (1920/21 and 1959/60) and have won the FA Cup once (1914).

They have been known variously as the Turfites, Moorites and Royalites, but these days they are known as the Clarets. Turf Moor is one of the oldest league grounds in England and Burnley are one of only three teams to have won all four professional divisions.
