About The Heights of Abraham
First opened to the public in 1787, The Heights is Derbyshire's oldest tourist attraction, made all the more iconic with the installation of cable cars in the 1980's. The Estate features underground guided cavern tours, a series of exhibitions including the brand new “Mirror on the Past” period costume exhibition which opened in May 2022. Other new attractions this year include a willow sculpture trail celebrating visitors from the past, a new cinema and living history actors.
Take a flight in our famous cable cars and escape for the day to the summit of the Heights of Abraham's 60-acre estate. Take two guided cavern tours into ancient lead mines. Breathe in the fresh Derbyshire air and admire the spectacular views of the surrounding Derwent Valley as you learn our 230-year story and find out why the Heights has been a favourite place to visit for generations. Let the kids loose on our two adventure playgrounds, and enjoy a refreshing meal in our Vista Restaurant or Terrace Café. With a free self-guided audio trail, access to two fascinating heritage buildings and endless zig-zag paths in our woodland trails, come along and enjoy the outdoors with your friends and family.
