On December Weekends and Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd December ....

For parents looking for a Christmas activity with a difference, Santa will be swapping his sleigh for a boat this Christmas at Cheshire’s Anderton Boat Lift.

Children and their families will have the chance of talking to Santa and receiving a present on a magical Santa Cruise along the picturesque River Weaver. Known as ‘Cathedral of the Canals’, the Lift is run by the Canal & River Trust charity and is located near Northwich on a large terraced site that also benefits from a new bespoke £50,000 play area.

A child’s ticket costs £7.95 and an adult’s £5.95.

Pre-booking is highly recommended on 01606 786777 or at

Everyone who pre-book tickets can also take advantage of a Festive Food Deal in the Lift’s tree-top Coffee Shop.

The Anderton Boat Lift is offering these memorable festive trips every weekend during December up until Christmas Eve, as well as on Thursday 21 and Friday 22 December.

Boats cast off at 10am, 11am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm.

These magical trips -  a treat for both children and adults - are full of festive family fun with games, songs and stories with Santa. Each child will meet Santa and receive a gift that has been specially picked by him.

Additional dates for the Santa Cruises are available to nurseries and school groups.
