Riverside walks and a salty history make this market town a must

Northwich is a picturesque, bustling market town in the heart of the Cheshire Plain and nestled beside the rivers Weaver and Dane. With attractions including the newly redeveloped Barons Quay, the awe-inspiring Anderton Boat Lift and the fascinating Lion Saltworks, as well as a lively high street full of big brands mixed in with unique independent shops and restaurants and the monthly Northwich Artisan Market, this is a lovely spot to make the most out of retirement living

Things to do in Northwich

As well as all the amenities you’d expect from a vibrant town, Northwich’s rich history and riverside location means it’s packed with interesting days out, including the incredible Anderton Boat Lift. One of the ‘seven wonders of the waterways’ it lifts canal boats and barges 50 feet from the river Weaver to the Trent & Mersey Canal. The delightful visitors centre is also well worth a trip and has a play area for the grandchildren too. The nearby Weaver Hall Museum and Workhouse gives a fascinating insight into the lives of people in a Victorian workhouse and the Lion Saltworks explains the history of salt-making in the region.

If you love exploring the great outdoors you won’t be short of country rambles in Northwich either, from Anderton nature reserve to Northwich community woodlands, which boasts a wildflower trail and dragonfly pond.
