We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.

Boat trips on the Edwin Clark

You can stand by the side and look up. You can stand on the top and look down. But trust us when we say, the only way to look at our boat lift is from the inside - on our boat trip.

Step aboard 'The Edwin Clark'

Our hard working, glass sided boat trip boat is 'The Edwin Clark', named after the engineer who designed and constructed this clever bit of Victorian machinery.

It seats up to 56 passangers and will take two wheelchairs.

Lift only trip (the short one)

Go up and down in the world on our 'lift only' trip. At around 45 minutes, this shorter trip is just about going on to the lift to see it at its best - when it's working! On the way, our guide shares the story of the lift, the people of the waterways that used it and the people who brought it back to life.

Prices   
Adults £8.00 
Children £6.00
Family (two adults and two children or one adult and three children)  £22.00

Lift and river trip (the long one)

At around 90 minutes, a combined lift and river cruise will take you along the picturesque River Weaver to Northwich and back. Not only do you get to see today's beautiful wildlife and historic Northwich, but our guide will help you discover the industrial heritage of the area and why the lift was so important then and now.

Prices   
Adults £12.50
Children £9.50
Family (two adults and two children or one adult and three children) £34.50

Both boat trips run 18 March until 5 November on these dates:

Anderton opening times

You'll need to book these back at the visitor centre - best to do so when you first arrive as these popular trips get full up pretty quickly.
