We enjoyed the cable car trip and the journey through the cavern (this requires sensible shoes with a good grip). The other attractions were mainly for kids. We were there for about 2 hours and that was enough time to do what we wanted to. The views at the top are stunning but were not helped on our visit because... More

Great day out enjoyed by all. The cavern was very interesting and Steve was great guide . We all enjoyed the cable cars. We enjoyed lunch in the cafe but think a picnic would have been a better idea as the views are breathtaking. Will return again soon.

Parking and queueing for cable car can be a problem at busy times but apart from that it's a great day out with wonderful views and walks. Plenty for Kids to do and places to eat with good menus.

My 89 year old mother and I visited the Heights of Abraham on the 13th May 2015. Mum was rather daunted by all the steps in the Great Masson Cavern but coped brilliantly and loved it. It was very busy. We then visited the Great Rutland Cavern, it seemed for some strange reason that it is ignored as we were... More

We have visited Peak District for the first time and what a amazing day out. Took a cable car to the top, visited two caverns and had a lovely lunch at the restaurant with beautiful view over the countryside.

Plenty of picnic areas for the kids to enjoy and adventure playground. The café has nice reasonably priced food and drink. They said they will be returning with their grand... More
