From beginning to end it was testing and scary but so fun at the same time. We did the scarytale room and we couldn’t stop laughing and shaking, loved every moment of it and will definitely go back again to try other rooms!! Thank you team for an amazing experience, I’m sure it was funny to watch!

We came for a day out to celebrate my partner's 30-something birthday and what a day! From my 39 to our youngest girl's 4 years, there was something to interest, even fascinate, all of us. The kids loved the cable car, Punch and Judy show and playgrounds, while us grown ups were fascinated by the history of the park and the cave tour; your guide Graham is a real asset to the place, knowledgeable and informative, but really laid back and funny. We can't wait to come back with the remaining younger manners of your little clan. The only bitter taste was left by the council car park whose ticket machines are cash-only and there's no option to pay by phone as is the norm elsewhere these days. Other than that one single gripe, The Heights of Abraham is a fabulous day out. Thank you!

Peak District Lead Mining Museum

Currently closed due lockdown - hope to be open every day from the 3rd December. Find out about the lead mining heritage of Derbyshire from Roman Times to the present. Interactive exhibits, mock tunnels and shafts to climb, moving models. The new Matlock Bath Through Time exhibition tells the story of a village that was one of the top Georgian Spas in the country. Then visit Temple Mine and find out what it was really like working underground followed by a try at gold panning. Suitable for all ages. Family ticket £28 (2A and 3C)

Due to Coronovirus we had a guided tour of the mine just to our little family. Chris, our guide, was really friendly and very knowledgeable on the mine and its operations. After the mine, we did some gold panning and all came away with a little haul of fools gold and amethyst. The museum was great with loads of information about the area and its mining history. Some interactive exhibits for the youngster's too. Its a shame covid has forced them to close the climbing tunnels but perfectly understandable. Great shop as well with loads of rocks and gems available to buy as well as books on mines and the local area. Really friendly staff topped the visit off. Would definitely recommend.
