This is a 10 Day* Narrowboat Hire taking you to the Anderton Boat Lift Visitor Centre in Northwich, Cheshire & back to Bugsworth in a very relaxed 10 days.
(10 day bookings not available at peak booking times, although the route is ideal for a group wishing to have days free from navigation to explore the local area by foot.)
The mighty Anderton Boat Lift is one of the 'Seven Wonders of the Waterways' and together with its visitor centre, coffee shop, brand new Let's Play play area and nearby Northwich Community Woodlands, make a visit unmissable.
Winner of large Visitor attraction of the year 2018– The Anderton Boat Lift has earned its nickname of Cathedral of the Canals for a very good reason. Not only does it still do the job it was designed to do of lifting boats and barges the 50 feet from the River Weaver to the Trent & Mersey Canal, but it does it with the most ingenious and endearing character of any structure on the canal system.
It also offers the intrepid among you a unique opportunity – to access the very top of the workings. Do you dare take our ‘Top of the World Tour’?
