Half term Halloween Fun at the Anderton Boat Lift

If you’re looking for Halloween Fun for all the family this year, the activity day and Halloween Party at the Anderton Boat Lift may just be what you’re looking for.

We're hosting a Halloween Party on Friday 31 October between 2.00pm and 4.30pm. 

Tickets are priced at £8.50 per person, which includes a spooky boat trip along the river on a specially decorated boat followed by food, games and competitions. 

Advance booking is recommended as places are limited.  For more information or to book telephone the visitor centre on 01606 786777.

Activity day 

Our Explorers Team will be holding an activity day tomorrow (Tuesday 28 October) when you can take part in bat activities including making bat wings, bat masks and bat origami.  Artwork and creations will be judged at the party on Friday afternoon. 

Graham Wood, duty manager at the Anderton Boat Lift said: “Canals and rivers are the perfect settings for parents to spend real quality time with their children. Our creepy cruise is a great way to do just that as part of your Halloween half term fun.”
