An Outstanding Day out in Cheshire

Welcome to The Lion Salt Works

The Lion Salt Works is now open to the public

Lion Salt Works

Now open to the public after a £10m restoration and voted the Uk's best heritage project  ....

This new ‘living museum’ gives a fascinating and fresh insight into the story of salt, explaining the national significance of Cheshire’s salt industry and how it shaped the local people, economy and landscape.

This is brought to life in the Museum with fun, interactive and imaginative educational exhibits, including a walk-in ‘subsiding house’. Theatrical lighting, sound and film also evoke the giant clouds of steam once produced by the site’s huge salt-boiling pans.

The extensive Museum comprises two restored pan houses and three restored stove houses. The Red Lion Pub at the entrance to the site (and for which the salt works is named) has also been incorporated as an education centre.

To appeal to a wide range of audiences, the Museum also contains an established Butterfly Garden, imaginatively-designed play area and café. Visitors to the site have free access to these areas.

The Museum will feature a regular programme of year-round events, including ‘salt boiling days’, themed play provision and an evolving calendar of events and activities.

Note, The Lion Salt Works is closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.
