Attraction Information

  • Railway and Transport Attractions icon Railway and Transport Attractions

Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor

The Anderton Boat Lift is literally a huge machine to lift boats from one river into another, it's so very much more exciting to see at work than the written word conveys!
The lower level houses the new exhibition, focusing upon the lift's history and the people who worked on and around it. The exhibition is colour coded to specific themes, with a high interactive content and an entertaining cinematic centrepiece. The lift control centre is located within the exhibition, enabling visitors to get up close and personal with the lift on its busy daily schedule.
Time travel through the unique structure on board the elegant Edwin Clark trip boat, journeying between the River Weaver and the Trent and Mersey Canal high above.
Feel free to browse the gift shop with its unique heritage and historic content, while outdoor decking offers fine views over the grounds and lift. On fine weather days, take advantage of the picnic areas, located in the impressive shadow of this mighty structure.
