The Anderton Boat Lift in Northwich provides an educational and unique day out for the whole family. Built in 1875 and restored in 1983, and then fully restored in 2002, this boatlift is an enormous piece of the industrial revolution that will appeal to young children for its sheer scale and older kids with a taste for history. Kids will love watching the lift transporting boats from river to river and can then mosey around the interactive exhibition where they can see the lift control centre, learn all about the history of the lift and the people that made it what it is today. There’s also a fantastic gift shop where you can all pick up souvenirs of your day and a great play area where the kids can blow of some steam before it’s time to set off home.
