Anderton Boat Lift offers free boat trip with afternoon tea this Mother’s Day
Anderton Boat Lift, near Northwich, Cheshire is offering the chance of deluxe afternoon tea at its Lift-side marquee this Mother’s Day with a free boat trip down the picturesque River Weaver.
Available on Sunday 11 March between 11.30 – 4.30pm this is part of a series of bespoke afternoon teas that will run from Mother’s Day until early autumn. Run by the Canal & River Trust charity, tickets cost £14.99 each. Tickets are expected to sell out quickly, for further information and to book, visit https://visitchester.digitickets.co.uk/tickets
Graham Wood, Anderton Boat Lift’s Duty Manager, said: “Mothers are special and deserve to be pampered. Booking a stylish afternoon tea at the Lift shows real thought has been given to making her day a special one. A free boat trip down the river is also a wonderful outing for the rest of the family. This is infinitely better than an expensive, hastily-chosen gift bought in desperation.”
There is no cost to enter the Anderton Boat Lift site and it is also free to visit the hands-on exhibition. There is also a well-stocked shop.
For those visiting the Lift during its opening season (March-October), the Anderton Boat Lift offers regular boat trips for which there is a charge. Visitors can experience how it feels to be magically transported through the Lift by this piece of high Victorian engineering. Alternatively, visitors can opt for a special boat trip and learn about the unique industrial heritage of Northwich, a town that has made its living on salt for more than 2000 years
There is no charge for children under 5 years old and the adult charge only applies to children over 15-years old.
