Heights of Abraham


Open 10th February - 4th November 2012, from 10am - 4.30pm.

Since first opening its gates to visitors in 1780 the Heights of Abraham has remained one of the Peak District's most popular destinations. Visitors have travelled from all over the world to experience its unique blend of spectacular underground caverns, stunning views and acres of beautiful woodland. In recent times however, the Heights has become rightly famous for its landmark Cable Car system which was introduced in 1984 - the first of its kind in the whole of the British Isles.

Originally the Heights of Abraham was reached on foot and required visitors to scale the steep slopes of Masson Hill. Rising from the valley floor, the observation cars transport you in comfort and safety and allow stunning views of the Derwent Valley and surrounding Peak District. There is a choice of places to eat and drink, providing an array of mouth-watering goods to suit all tastes and budgets.
