Pubs and grub - Burnley Cricket Club (BB10 4BN) has a clubhouse right next to the ground and you can park there, while the 110 Club (BB11 3BY) near Turf Moor is a private club which lets in away fans for a small entrance fee while children are welcome.
Meanwhile, The Bridge Bier Huis (BB11 1UH) is a ten-minute walk from the ground, and also serves alcohol and refreshments. The pub is also welcome to children.
If real ale is your thing, The Talbot Hotel (BB11 2RS) is opposite the Sparrowhawk restaurant. It's a big pub with a large screen TV, so you could watch the early games there.
Hotels - Hotels near the town centre or Turf Moor are Holiday Inn Express, Rosehill House Hotel, Premier Inn, and Oaks Hotel and Leisure Club.
Parking - There are 200 parking spaces at the Hollywood Park Cinema (BB11 2EG), costing £1 for 6 hours or £2 all day. It's a 15-minute walk to Turf Moor and has easy access to the motorway, enabling a quick getaway after the game. Street parking is also available.
By train and metro - There are two train stations close to Turf Moor: Burnley Central (local trains, a 20-minute walk) and Burnley Manchester Road (express trains, a 15-minute walk).
From Manchester Road, cross the road towards the cinema (you can see the ground in the distance). Turn left onto 'Centenary Way' - a dual carriageway going downhill. After a few minutes, turn right under the canal bridge. Carry on down this road, and the ground is on the left.
Trains from Swansea take six hours, leaving at 5.50am, 6.44am and 7.44am. The only trains to get you back to Swansea that evening are the 17:14 and the 18:14 from Manchester Road.
