Heights of Abraham

Heights of Abraham

Ride the alpine style cable car and enjoy spectacular views of Derwent Valley and the surrounding Peak District.

Explore the caverns with a guided tour or visit the fossil factory to discover the prehistoric remains of a giant Ichthyosaur.

With play areas for the kids and refreshments available from the Tree Tops Visitors Centre, this is a fantastic day out for all the family, including your dog – they ride the cable cars for free.

The closest car parks are in the local village and are all pay and display.

You can grab something to eat at the Vista Bar and Restaurant or at the Terrace Café. The panoramic views of the Peak District also make it an ideal spot for a picnic.
