The Anderton Boat Lift is offering a deluxe afternoon tea for Mother’s Day.
The exclusive offer at a lift-side marquee at the ‘Cathedral of the Canals’ also includes a free boat trip down the River Weaver.
Available on Sunday, March 11 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.
Located on the terraced site overlooking the River Weaver, the heated Lift View marquee is, as the name suggest, next to the Lift – the world’s first successful boat lift and an acknowledged masterpiece of Victorian engineering.
Afternoon teas will comprise of a range of freshly-made sandwiches, delicious cakes and a selection of teas.
Anderton Boat Lift’s duty manager Graham Wood 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.

The Anderton Boat Lift is owned by the Canal & River Trust charity and was restored in 2002 after a £7 million restoration made possible due to a substantial grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. For more details visit canalrivertrust.org.uk
