Honister Slate Mine - Mine Tours

MINE TOURS This excursion into the subterranean world provides a wonderful insight into the history of the mine and allows you to grasp the immense scale of our operations and those of our forebears. There are more than eleven miles of tunnels in all – though you won’t see them all, of course! – and during the tour, you’ll see some of the enormous caverns in which we work. You will also learn how we extract and process the slate using a mixture of modern and traditional techniques. Helmets and lamps are provided and the whole tour normally lasts around 1½ hours. Also see Honister Via Ferrata for an outdoor adventure ALL DAY PASSES There's just that much going on at Honister these days that you can bearly fit it all into one day. We now offer an ALL DAY PASS which includes - underground Mine tour, Lunch and The Via Ferrata Classic or The Via Ferrata + Zip - all at a very special price!!
