To support the national effort to keep people safe, we’re following the Government’s advice on coronavirus. We are closing the coffee shop and gift shop at Anderton Boat Lift from Friday 20 March. For more information, read our latest coronavirus update.
Perfect for picnics on a sunny day or paninis on pretty much any day, our Coffee Shop has one of the most superb views around. And once you've finished your lunch, you'll still have time to pick up a memento or two in our gift shop.
Our coffee shop, with its full height glass wall over looking our amazing boat, continues to expand its menu. From light lunches, such as toasted paninis, jacket potatoes and soup to a well deserved freshly brewed coffee and slice of hand-made cake for afternoon tea. You'll find a great selection of mouth-watering options.
You can eat indoors but outdoor decking offers fantastic views over the grounds and lift. On good weather days, take advantage of the picnic areas, scattered in the impressive shadow of this mighty structure.
Feel free to browse the gift shop with its unique heritage and historic items as well as children's favourites, books, games, toys and sweets. Plus, a few surprises and nice little somethings to treasure.
