Sitting where the Shropshire Union Canal meets the Manchester Ship Canal and the River Mersey, volunteers, funders and Trust colleagues have transformed the old docks into a fantastic family day out.
The National Waterways Museum, Ellesmere Port looks after one of the greatest collections of historic boats in the world.
Using the latest interactive technology and hands-on exhibitions, you can truly experience what it was like to live and work on the waterways over the last 200 years. Plus, discover how canals and rivers are still making life better by water today.
Don’t forget that you can also bring the dog. Recently awarded Dog Friendly Business of the Year 2018 in the Marketing Cheshire Awards, furry friends on a lead will be most welcome.
Can they tempt you with some chocolate cake and few crafty mementos of your day here? Take time out in their Waterside Café and gift shop.
