The Anderton Boat Lift is a marvel. It's been totally restored and is a working boat lift. The exhibits are interesting, and it is fun (really) to take a ride on it. The guide is wonderful and the experience made me want to take a river cruise down the Mersey.

There is an adjoining Nature Park that has all kinds of gentle trails and is very well done. Great for a family trip!

Address: near Manchester, in Northwich
Directions: Anderton Boat Lift is located just over 3 miles from Northwich Town Centre and approximately 20 miles from Manchester Airport.
It can be reached off the M60 by joining the M56 and exiting at Junction 7.
