The story behind the original construction of the lift, its re-design and restoration is fascinating and clearly told even for the non-technical like me. Those Victorians were so clever and enterprising. There is a very pleasant picnicky type area outside too. Don't bother with the boat trip, though. It doesn't add to what you can see very clearly from the plentiful viewpoints. Pricey too. The attraction makes a fine day out if combined with the Lion Salt Works.

Visited the boat lift on 20th April 2018. Started off on the boat to Northwich and had the pleasure of listening to a very informative and entertaining guide. Then the boat went into the lift and we were able to appreciate the wonders of Victorian engineering.
Well worth going to see.

Had a great trip on the boat up the anderton lift. The staff were fun and friendly, the lift fascinating and the boat clean and safe.

Also noteworthy Cafe with very sensibly priced food served by attentive staff. Worth combining a trip with a meal or snack here.

Brilliant to see it working and maintained so well.

Drove all the way up from Warwickshire to come see the lift. So worth it, so interesting - very knowledgeable guide, thoroughly enjoyable tip down the river, really polite & friendly staff and the visitors centre is very well equipped for my elderly dad who has walking difficulties.
