Beware the Pirates at the Lion Salt Works Museum

Fancy the life of a pirate? Then step on board with lots of exciting pirate-themed activities and crafts around the site.


The multi-award-winning Lion Salt Works Museum, based near Northwich, will be hosting action-packed fun for children across the region this Summer. Each week will feature a different theme for two-days of creative ‘drop in’ workshops, taking place on Tuesday and Wednesday. For more information go to westcheshiremuseums.co.uk or call the Museum on 01606 275040.

During each week of the Summer, the Museum’s Tuesday and Wednesday activities take place between 10.30am – 1pm and 2pm – 4.30pm. These drop-in activities are suitable for young visitors aged up to 11 and cost £2 per child. Visitors do not have to pay to go into the Museum to take part in these events. The Museum’s site has an imaginatively-themed play area, parking is free and the café and shop is open to everyone.

Councillor Louise Gittins, Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Wellbeing at Cheshire West and Chester Council, said: “It is going to be a fun, varied and action-packed Summer full of imaginative and educational activities at the Lion Salt Works Museum. The site also features free access to a large industrially-themed play area, the butterfly garden and free parking. Located next to the beautiful Northwich woodlands and right next to the tranquil Trent & Mersey Canal with is colourful narrowboats, the Museum is the perfect location to come for the day with family, friends and a picnic.”

The Lion Salt Works features not only fun and interactive displays about the story of salt and its impact on the landscape, people and industries of Cheshire but also a child-friendly café, butterfly garden and large play area. There is plenty of free parking.
