People are enthralled at how much there is to do here. In recent times, the Heights has become rightly famous for its iconic landmark Cable Cars - the first of its kind in the whole of the British Isles. Yet there is lots more to your visit than a cable car ride, and for visitors who only have a day here, the Heights is one place where you can get a real flavour of the true Peak District. Set high on top of a limestone gorge, with the river Derwent at its feet, the estate is surrounded by some of the area's most beautiful scenery. At the Summit visitors experience the unique blend of two spectacular show caverns; The Great Masson Cavern, where the whole chamber is seen awash with colour, you experience the magnitude of this cavern as it has never been seen before. Further down the hillside The Great Rutland Cavern experience tells the story of a day in the life of a 17th century lead miner. 2010 is the 200th anniversary of the Rutland Cavern being open to the public for the first time in 1810. This is the start of a great Summer of events from Meet The Lady of the Lamp Florence Nightingale to Punch & Judy from famous puppeteer Richard Coombs to stories of Myths, Legends and Dragons from Sophie Snell.
