We are extremely sorry to inform our customers that the Anderton Boat Lift structure will remain closed until further notice. This means we are unable to run trips through the lift itself. However, we will be running 60 minute river cruises along the picturesque Weaver Navigation. The trip includes a brilliant commentary of the history of the River and Anderton Lift, and a rarely seen up close and personal view of this incredible scheduled ancient monument.
We welcome bookings, please call 01606 786 777 for more information.
The attraction, including boat trips, will be closed on the following Thursdays: 7 July, 4 August, 1 September and 6 October 2022
Anderton Boat Lift is Cheshire’s award-winning attraction; a Victorian masterpiece of waterway engineering, built in 1875.
