There’s more to see and do than ever before at the award-winning Heights of Abraham... - Derby Days Out

There’s more to see and do than ever before at the award-winning Heights of Abraham...

Derbyshire’s oldest tourist attraction continues to add new attractions and facilities every year, and 2022 promises to be a bumper year for new features that celebrate visitors of the past 230 years including a collection of stunning willow sculptures, a butterfly ISPY trail for younger visitors, a new film theatre and gift shop, and a fantastic period costume exhibition that offers a walk-through time. 

The estate first opened in 1787 and has been welcoming visitors ever since. This year the 60-acre estate will be open daily until the 6th of November.

Begin your day at the Heights of Abraham by taking a flight in one of the famous cable cars. Travel across the picturesque Derwent Valley in style and enjoy the views of Matlock Bath below. The journey takes you over 554ft upwards to the summit, 100ft above sea level.

It's not just the views from the cable car, there's a new view around every corner once you reach the summit. Experience the Peak District surrounding this special hilltop estate, with views of peaks and valleys everywhere you look.

Take your adventure underground on a guided tour of the two famous show caverns. Follow one of the professional cavern guides deep into the hillside and learn tales of mining, history, geology, and tourism from those who know it best. 

After that, there’s acres of landscaped gardens to explore, plus two huge adventure playgrounds for the children to let off some steam! Grab an ice cream and enjoy the views while they run, climb and slide!

Once it’s time for lunch, the Vista Restaurant and Terrace Café at the Heights of Abraham are the places to find! The upstairs restaurant is great place to soak up the surroundings while enjoying a freshly made meal, accompanied by a local ale or gin. Or take a light lunch with friends in the downstairs café, with far-reaching views to enjoy with a hot drink and a delicious cake.

Enjoy the wide-open space and relaxing atmosphere of the summit. Feel the Derbyshire air fill your lungs as you breathe the spectacular scenery in. Access to everything at the Heights estate is included in the cable car ticket, giving you entry to fascinating exhibitions, historic buildings, spectacular viewpoints and more. Entry to all seasonal events is also granted.
