Sports & Outdoors

Visit Honister Slate Mine, and you can enjoy a number of different tours from the deep underground tour to the very edge of the mountain, then up and deep inside. Honister Crag is one of the most remarkable old industrial landscapes in the region, and there are tours of its industrial ecology available. Or you could take a bespoke Cathedral Mine Tour of the working mine, and listen to the humorous and sometimes sad stories that have arisen over the last 15 years at Honister.

If you don’t know what to try why not take the Discover Honister tour and combine a visit to the mine with a crossing of the fabulous Infinity Bridge to view the Via Ferrata routes.
