Traditional Weddings at Best Western Oaks Hotel, Burnley

Our traditional wedding destination is nestled in the heart of Lancashire, in touching distance of wonderful countryside that makes for an inspiring location when saying ‘I do’, including the Forest of Bowland and Pendle Hill. At the Best Western Oaks Hotel in Burnley, we pride ourselves on offering a wedding venue steeped in local heritage, considering it was once a private home for a local tea merchant in the area. Guests can discover the history behind the venue whilst they enjoy a wonderful traditional wedding day.

The Oaks Hotel Traditional Wedding Venue

We have an awe-inspiring 25ft tall stained-glass window in the main reception area, which towers over our sweeping staircase, making for a breath-taking sight when walking through the front door. Couples who visit the Oaks Hotel often comment at the traditional furnishings and are pleasantly surprised to find a historical wedding venue that has been kept in such good condition.
