Honister Pass England CA12 GB

Take a full-guided tour down into the depths of England’s last remaining working slate mine. With helmets and head torches provided, you will feel safe as you enter a whole new world. Learn about the mine’s history and get to hear some very interesting and inspiring stories.

You could also take part in the ‘Via Ferrata’, which is Latin for the ‘Iron Way’. Walk on the original miners’ track up the steep outer incline of Fleetwith Pike and be in awe with the spectacular and dramatic views of mountain scenery.

And if you discover a new-found love for slate, take advantage of ‘Fill Ya Boot’ and see how much slate you can fit in your car boot for just £20.00.
