It’s the 35th Birthday of Heights of Abraham’s Cable Cars this Easter, and you’re invited to help celebrate!
Easter is a fantastic time of year to get together with family and friends and the Heights of Abraham provide the perfect location for endless amounts of fun. So why not take a sky ride over the pretty village of Matlock Bath in one of Derbyshire’s award winning visitor attractions?
What makes it even more special, is the occasion which Easter holds for Heights of Abraham. They’re celebrating the 35th Birthday of the Cable Cars so make some room in your diaries to join the party too.
The estate has been welcoming tourists for over two centuries, but it wasn’t until 1984 when an ambitious plan to install a cable car transport system was realized, that visitors could literally take off to The Heights.
An ‘easter-emely’ exciting day for everyone indeed.
In Victorian times, when the village was a fashionable spa, ponies and donkeys used to carry wealthy visitors, who were curious to discover the underground world in the famous show caverns, which form part of the estate.
Originally the Heights of Abraham was only accessible to visitors who could scale the steep slopes of Masson Hill. In 1984 Britain’s first alpine style cable car transport system was installed. Rising from the valley floor, the observation cars transport you in comfort and safety and allow stunning summit views of the Derwent Valley and surrounding Peak District leaving you struck with awe and breathtaking landscapes.
Almost all of the machinery on the cable cars have now been replaced since their inception, but 35 years of existence is a great excuse to celebrate.
If the attraction alone doesn’t persuade you, then The Heights of Abraham also have a range of lovely birthday cakes on offer in the cafes and restaurants… and who doesn’t love cake!?
You also have the opportunity to take your own Heights selfie inside the huge birthday card too!
We feel this is a fantastic attraction for all ages and a great achievement for the Cable Cars that have brought happiness to visitors for many years.
