Had my mums wake in the Trophy Room Bar and it was great. The staff were good, polite and helpful and the room was spotlessly clean. We had their own buffet and the food was great as well. Pork pies, sandwiches, crisps, dips, quiche etc. I would have given a 5* but the venue is cashless and we weren't able to use an outside caterer if we'd wished to.

Turf Moor is one of my favourite places to watch football. It's a proper football ground. Burnley get a lot of support from the local area and have a great tradition. Hope they stay in the Premier league

Don't park at the ground if you want to get away quick. Great legroom on seats.

I help look after a 96 year old lady whose flat is right opposite Turf Moor and on match days when Burnley have won and everyone is pouring out of the grounds the atmosphere is electric. I try to stand at the door and watch or better still if I have finished what I have to do I join the snake of people walking into town.It makes u want to buy a season ticket.

History (from Wikipedia)

Turf Moor's pitch is surrounded by four stands: the Bob Lord, the Cricket Field, the James Hargreaves and the Jimmy McIlroy. The two newest stands, the James Hargreaves and the Jimmy McIlroy, both have two tiers, while the Bob Lord and Cricket Field are single-tiered. Away supporters are seated in the Cricket Field Stand.[43] The stadium has a capacity of 21,944,[1] which is approximately one seat for every three inhabitants of the town—one of the best ratios in English football.[44][45]

The James Hargreaves Stand, constructed in 1996,
[6] was originally known as the North Stand.[28] It can accommodate around 8,000 spectators and runs parallel to the length of the pitch.[46][47] The television gantry and the press box are both situated at the back of the James Hargreaves.[48] The stand's suite has been licensed since 2005 to hold civil wedding services and it can also be used for banqueting events.[49][50] The Jimmy McIlroy Stand was erected in 1996 and is situated at the eastern side of the pitch with an approximate capacity of 6,000.[46][47] Together with the James Hargreaves, the stand houses the stadium's corporate hospitality boxes. The Jimmy McIlroy's upper tier is the designated family area.[47][51] A memorial garden is located behind the stand and includes a dugout replica with an image of manager Brian Miller with his hands aloft, which was taken before Burnley's match against Orient in 1987;[52][53] Burnley defeated their opponents and stayed in the Football League.[54]

The Bob Lord Stand, constructed in 1974,
[8] has a capacity of around 4,000 and runs parallel with the Harry Potts Way, named after the manager who won the 1959–60 First Division with Burnley.[55][56] It houses the club's trophy room as well as the directors' box and a corporate area.[55] The Burnley club shop is located between the Bob Lord and Jimmy McIlroy Stands.[1][57] The Cricket Field, built in 1969, is Turf Moor's oldest stand.[6][43] It houses home and away fans and has a capacity of around 4,000.[1][43] The stand backs onto Burnley Cricket Club's pavilion and contains both teams' dressing rooms and the officials' lounge.[33][55]

Burnley opened the world's first 
higher education institution with university degrees in the football and sports industry in 2011. It was named the University Campus of Football Business (UCFB) and was set up at Turf Moor.[58][59] Since then, other campus locations were opened at Wembley Stadium, London, and at the City of Manchester Stadium, Manchester.[60]

A popular drink served at Turf Moor since the First World War is "Béné & Hot"—the French liqueur 
Bénédictine topped up with hot water. The East Lancashire Regiment soldiers acquired a taste for the drink while stationed at the birthplace of the beverage in FécampNormandy, during the war. They drank it with hot water to keep warm in the trenches, and the surviving soldiers later returned to the East Lancashire area with the liqueur. In excess of 30 bottles are sold at each game, which makes the club one of the world's biggest sellers of Bénédictine; Turf Moor is the only British football ground to sell it.[61]
