Event Description

The Big Burnley Walk is back!

After the success of 2023, new routes have been created to connect people and communities across Burnley, with a wander through the town's wonderful green and blue spaces.

Starting and finishing at Burnley Youth Theatre, there will be the option of 3 routes. Maps with brief written instructions will be provided on the day, but for a brief overview and  routes please see the links further down this page.

There will be check points on the longer routes which will provide a place for a brief rest, snacks, refreshments and water.

The event will include tail walkers for each route, who will guide at a steady pace so no-one is alone or left behind.

Registration from 9am. 

  • 9.30am - Long Route "Big Burnley Walk" departs.
  • 10am - Short Stroll departs
  • 10.30am - Medium Meander departs.

Above TBC, as departure times may change. However all routes will have departed by 10.30am. Please check back soon for full itinerary and final departure times.

As this is an outdoor event, participants should be dressed appropriately for the weather and wearing suitable footwear. It is recommended that you check the weather on the day of the event and bring spare warm clothing, waterproofs, sun cream etc.


There are toilets at Burnley Youth Theatre (start and finish), and there will be other public toilets in parks en route.

Dogs are allowed outside of Burnley Youth Theatre in the car park and grounds, but unfortunately will not be allowed in the building.

Well behaved dogs on leads are welcomed. Please be mindful of other participants who may be afraid of dogs.

The Short Stroll is on trails and paths that are suitable for prams. There are a couple of steeper inclines so please bare this in mind.

The event will only be cancelled if there is a severe weather warning in place or flooding to the route. The decision for cancelling will be made for 8am on the day of the event and you will be notified via email if this is the case.
