Blackburn Cathedral

Over the past 10 years, further extensions and improvements have been made to the cathedral and the local area. The addition of a library, refectory, underground car park and accommodation for clergy and staff, has only enhanced its reputation.

Blackburn’s Cathedral Court development has also seen the introduction of a new transport interchange, hotel, offices and one of the most unusual dining locations, the Café in the Crypt, based in the basement of Blackburn’s famous cathedral.

Blackburn Museum and Art Gallery

If history is your thing, just a seven minute walk down the road and you will come across the Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery, located just north of The Blackburn Mall.

Packed full of wonderful memories of Blackburn’s past, present and future, the Grade II listed building really does pay homage to the town’s wonderful legacy.

There’s something for everyone too, from amazing displays of looms and textile-related items showcasing Blackburn’s role in the Industrial Revolution, to an extensive Cleopatra collection, a mummy from the first century AD and even glass cabinets holding thousands of preserved beetles from around the world.

Blackburn has a rich and wonderful history and your business has the opportunity to play its part in the town’s next chapter.

Blackburn Rovers Football Club

Blackburn’s proud history is extended to their football club, Blackburn Rovers. Formed in 1875 and one of the founding members of the football league in 1888, they are a club, like their town, with a rich heritage.

Playing their home games at Ewood Park in Blackburn (BB2 4JF) and just two miles from Unit 6 Business First Blackburn, Rovers are most recently well known for their

unbelievable and seismic rise to the top of English football under owner Blackburn-born businessman Jack Walker.

Boyhood Rovers fan Walker arrived in January 1991 and by May 1995, the East Lancashire Club had famously won the Premier League title.

Another amazing feat for the ever growing town of Blackburn.

Blackburn’s bid to enter ‘City Status’

With a great history behind it, Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council is currently going head-to-head with other towns around the UK (and world) in a competition to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee this summer.

The prize at stake? City status for Blackburn.

Highlighting both its economic and cultural strengths, as well as historical links to Royalty, past and present, Blackburn believes now is their time to succeed in a bid.

The town already boasts some highly successful entrepreneurial start ups including Euro Garages, which have gone on to become successful around the globe. An opportunity which could now present itself for your business here in our Blackburn office space.

East Lancashire transport links and logistics
