Burnley has good road links from the West, North and South. The M65 runs through the town and is easily accessed from the M6 and M66(A56). Junction 10 is the main junction for the town with limited access from Junction 9 and 11. Access from the East using the A646 is slow, and from the North via Colne suffers from significant congestion. From the North it is often quicker to use the M6/M65.

Rail links to the town are good. The town has two stations within walking distance of the town centre, 53.794-2.2451 Burnley Central and 53.785-2.2491 Burnley Manchester Road, with a third, 53.791-2.2581 Burnley Barracks serving a housing estate and the fringe of the town. The main station is Burnley Manchester Road Station which has recently been redeveloped. It has express services to Blackpool North, Preston, Leeds and York, taking approximately 35 minutes to Preston(with connections to London and Glasgow) and hour to Leeds. In addition a new service to Manchester Victoria started in 2015. From Burnley Central there is also an hourly stopping service from Burnley Central to Accrington, Preston, Blackpool South and Colne. The journey time is approximately 58 minutes to Preston but has earlier and much later trains than the service to Burnley Manchester Road. Safety on board the trains is usually good with a Guard onboard all services, however Burnley Central is located in quite an isolated area of town after the nearby retail park closes at night so those unfamiliar with the area should ideally arrange to be met or leave the area quickly.
