Heights of Abraham in Matlock Bath.

Attractions, Places2go

Bring the whole family for a unique adventure at the Heights of Abraham in Matlock Bath, Derbyshire. Soar above the valley on an exciting cable car ride, taking in the scenery below before reaching the summit of Masson Hill, 1000ft above sea level!

Explore the underground world on two different guided tours of illuminated show caverns. Venture deep into the mines of Masson Hill and twist and turn through the tunnels in the Great Masson Cavern before witnessing the colourful lighting displays in the main chamber. Tour with the Victorians at the Great Rutland Cavern where little ones are invited to take part in demonstrations during the tour. Both tours are suitable for children.

Take a woodland walk through the winding pathways of the estate and discover the Treetop Butterfly Trail, with 12 giant butterflies for children to spot hiding in the trees. There are two adventure playgrounds waiting to be explored, with giant slides, basket swings and climbing equipment a-plenty! Let the kids loose while enjoying a locally made ice cream and soaking in the far-reaching views.

During the school summer holidays, here at Heights of Abraham  you can enjoy the Punch and Judy show which provides entertainment for all the family! With laughs for little ones and grown up jokes for the adults in the group, enjoy the tradition of the Punch and Judy show, but with a brilliant twist!

For lunch there’s a fabulous café and a spectacular restaurant with outstanding views to accompany each meal. The café serves a children’s packed lunch along with pasties, paninis, cakes and bakes, and the restaurant offers a children’s menu, complete with delicious desserts!
