This varied holiday includes a visit to the Anderton Boat Lift, nicknamed the Cathedral of the canals, still doing the job it was designed for back in 1875 with the most ingenious and endearing character of any structure on the canal system. On another day we explore historic Chester, a city that delights visitors with period architecture and riverside walks. We then step back in time as we journey to the quaint market town of Llangollen for an evocative horse-drawn canal cruise through the tranquil waters.
Anderton Boat Lift River Cruise
We head to Anderton en route to our hotel to experience the Edwin Clark boat trip. This amazing 19th century feat of engineering lifts our boat an incredible fifty feet between the River Weaver and the Trent & Mersey Canal. Afterwards, we enjoy a cruise on the river.
Chester’s gems include old city walls, Roman amphitheatre and a stunning cathedral as well as pleasure cruises on the River Dee and historic halftimbered architecture.
Llangollen Horse Drawn Canal Cruise
We head to Llangollen Wharf to board our boat for a leisurely sail along the picturesque Llangollen Canal. Admire the scenery along with the strength of the handsome horse as you experience life from the olden days. Afterwards, enjoy some free time to explore this pretty market town.
On our way home we enjoy a visit to the popular Salford Quays. Manchesters unique waterfront destination with a wealth of attractions.
