The Heights of Abraham, in Derbyshire, is gearing up to a year of festivities celebrating two significant anniversaries in its 237-year history. Ranking as Derbyshire’s second favourite destination after Chatsworth House, the attraction re-opened to visitors again for the summer season on Saturday, 10th February 2024.
May marks the 50th ‘Golden Anniversary’ since the Pugh family took over the dilapidated hilltop estate, transforming it into today’s flourishing attraction. In April, the estate commemorates the 40th ‘Ruby Anniversary’ of its iconic alpine-style cable cars, which offer a scenic ascent to Masson Hill’s summit, a haven of spectacular views and enchanting caverns that have captivated visitors since 1787.
Today the attraction offers a full family experience, with two illuminated show caverns, breathtaking panoramic views from the estate’s vantage points, living history exhibitions, woodland trails and adventure playgrounds. Enjoy a day of learning and inspiration that invites guests of every age to view the region’s splendour from a fresh angle, spanning from the mountainous Peaks to the deep, mineral-laden exhibition caverns, offering a captivating exploration of the area’s geological and historical tapestry.
