Plans to transform Burnley into a university town are fast taking shape as work on new student accommodation changes the town centre skyline.

It is part of the University of Central Lancashire’s (UCLan) plans to expand student numbers in Burnley from 400 to 4,000 by 2025.


A luxury £12m hotel is the latest leisure attraction to appear on the Burnley skyline, a facility expected to boost Burnley’s profile across the region.

The new Crow Wood Hotel is the final piece in the jigsaw for entrepreneur Andrew Brown’s Crow Wood leisure complex, a labour of love that started nearly 20 years ago. The hotel will be open to the public in November, however the fbe have an exclusive access to the hotel before it opens its doors to the public.



Doors will open at 7:15am with breakfast being served from 7:30am.  We will aim to finish around 9:00am but you are welcome to remain at the venue for additional networking until 9:30am
