The charity making life better by water

Coffee shop and gift shop

Perfect for picnics and takeaway pizza, our coffee shop and picnic area has one of the most superb views around.

In the coffee shop

Our coffee shop, with its full height glass wall over-looking our amazing boat lift, offers a selection of refreshments to eat in or take away. Choose from a wide range of hot drinks and mouth-watering snacks including breakfasts, pizza, paninis, sandwiches and jacket potatoes or maybe try one of our delicious cakes.

Picnic spot

You can take your drinks out on the outdoor decking which 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.

Stop at our shop

Feel free to browse the gift shop with its unique heritage and historic items as well as children's favourites: books, games and toys. There's doggy treats too. Plus, a few surprises and nice little somethings to treasure.
