Come together by the canal
As restrictions have eased, our museums and attractions with safe outdoor spaces are now open again to the public. There are some great places to meet friends or family for an outdoor get together. Here’s our quick guide to where to go, with all the details you need.
Situated right next to country parks, Anderton is perfect for a great day outdoors. It’s one of the ‘Seven Wonders of the Waterways’ and together with its visitor centre, coffee shop, brand new ‘Let’s Play’ play area and nearby Northwich Woodlands, makes a visit unmissable.
Open Friday to Monday, 10:00am to 4:00pm. We hope to extend opening times to full seven-day opening by late June.
For those of us who enjoy a cup of tea and a slice of cake on a day out, our newly refurbished café at Stoke Bruerne is now open. Pop in for a drink or a bite to eat after a walk, cycle or spot of fishing along the towpath.
Open daily Monday to Friday, 10:00am to 4:00pm and Saturday to Sunday, 10:00am to 5:00pm.
The spectacular aqueduct, beautiful canalside walks and fascinating Trevor Basin visitor centre are now all fully open. Just over an hour’s drive from Manchester, Liverpool or Birmingham, it’s well worth getting out of town to visit our wonderful UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Open Wednesday to Sunday, 10:00am to 4:00pm.
Come and enjoy the peacefulness of being outdoors by the canal, absorb the history from the Grade II listed buildings and learn about the lives and work of the canal people as you stroll around this seven-acre site.
Open Thursday to Sunday, 10:00am to 4:00pm.
Gloucester Docks, the most inland port in the country is home to old dock buildings, designer shops, cool cafés and fantastic museums making it a great place for a family day out.
Open Tuesday to Saturday 10:00am to 3:00pm.
Keep an eye on our places to visit for the very latest details and updates.
