The home of ADVENTURE in The Lake District

Here at honister, we take pride in being a little different from your usual mine. As well as producing beautiful Westmorland Green Slate that dates back over 450 million years, we also offer visitors a chance to make exciting memories in the heart of the Lake District.

From adrenaline-pumping abseils and cliff camping to mine tours and canyoning, we have a wide selection of all-weather experiences to choose from. Whether you’ve got a head for heights, or fancy delving deep into a working slate mine, there’s something for everyone here at honister.
