Top of the World tour at Anderton Boat Lift

Do you dare to stand on the top of the Anderton Boat Lift?

Ever wanted to see the Anderton Boat Lift up close?

On special dates we will be giving you the chance to get up close and personal with the Anderton Boat Lift. This unique behind the scenes tour is not for the faint hearted, the tour starts in the Visitor Centre and then you are guided out on to the lift along the aqueduct, taken into the previously unseen control room and machine deck. 

Booking is advisable as the space on each tour is limited. The tour is priced at £10 per person.

See our Events page for available dates and times

Please call the booking line on 01606 786 777

The tour is on the top of the lift so is not suitable for people with a fear of heights. Please wear suitable footwear and clothing. This is a walking tour and there is a need to climb steps. A minimum age policy applies.
