IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM BLACKBURN WITH DARWEN

Unfortunately, our planned opening weekend of Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd March has now been postponed until further notice.

As you can imagine we are very disappointed about this but the health and safety of our visitors and volunteers must come first.

We will keep you all updated on any developments from Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council as and when they happen.

Thank you to everyone for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you soon.

 Turton Tower is a house that has been evolving over the last 600 years. From a stone tower house in the 1400s to the home of the Tudor Orrell and, later, the Victorian Kay Families, Turton Tower has been altered and adapted to suit the needs and tastes of those who lived here.

It is because of these changes that Turton Tower is of national importance and unique in Northwest England. Today it still captures the spirit of those ages and displays some of the finest paintings and furniture in the region.
