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 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.
