You’ll start your day by venturing deep underground – enjoying a fully guided mine tour(The Kimberley or The Honister Tour) – lasting 1hr 30min where you’ll head inside the massive caverns inside the iconic Lake District mountain, Fleetwith Pike.
You can sit down and relax while our friendly staff fix you up a miner’s lunch (including tasty soup, delicious paninis/pasties and a hot or cold drink).
After lunch, it’s time to prepare yourself for the Via Ferrata (lasting approx 3 hrs). Our fully-qualified staff will get you kitted up ready for the next stage of your unique Honister experience.
In between trips you’ll have time to explore our Visitor Centre and even watch our factory men transforming huge slabs into the best slate products in the world. You can pick up a slate gift in our shop, or enjoy a tea or coffee at one of the most scenic cafes in the whole of the Lake District.
