Boat trips on the Edwin Clark

Take one of our boat trips on the Anderton Boat Lift. 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...

Step aboard 'The Edwin Clark'

Our trip boat runs every Tuesday plus every Saturday and Sunday until the end of October.

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 passengers 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 30 minutes, this shorter trip is just about going on to the lift to see it at its best - 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.

Adults 25+ £9.00
Children under 3 Free
Young adult 3-24 £7.00
Family ticket (2 adults and 2 children or 1 adult and 3 children). £25.00

Lift and river trip (the long one)

At around 75 minutes, a combined lift and river cruise will take you along the picturesque River Weaver Navigation 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.
