The fully accessible Visitor Centre boasts a two storey facility with coffee shop for that much needed 'rest bite'. The welcome desk serves the gift shop and provides tickets for the trip boat through the lift and/or along the Weaver Navigation, exhibition area and toilet facilities. For 2012 the Exhibition and Grounds are free for our 10th year celebrations.
The lower level houses the exhibition, focusing upon the story of the lift’s history and the people who worked on and around it. The exhibition is colour coded to specific themes, with a high interactive content and an entertaining cinematic centrepiece. The lift control centre is located within the exhibition, enabling visitors to get up close and personal with the lift on its busy daily schedule.
Time travel through the unique structure on board the elegant Edwin Clark trip boat, journeying between the River Weaver and the Trent & Mersey Canal high above.
Feel free to browse the gift shop with its unique heritage and historic content, while outdoor decking offers fine views over the grounds and lift. On fine weather days, take advantage of the picnic areas, located in the impressive shadow of this mighty structure.
