The cable car ride was the high light of my trip tbh the cave was uninteresting and boring from start to finish it was thankful it's included in the price as I would have been thoroughly disappointed if we had had to pay for it the cafe is ok we had to have chips as the gluten free options were little to none and staff seemed very clueless on what a celiac disease was guys you need to get on this, the fossil shop\exhibition is a joke they were plaster cast fossils and very over priced gift items

Really enjoyable experience. Pricey but lots included. You can spend the majority of the day here so what do you expect? Days out are expensive these days. Cable cars, caverns and beautiful views across peaceful countryside. Another positive would be for our cavern guide Gemma. She was charismatic, fun and really made our visit worthwhile.

Lovely day out with our 4 and 7 year old girls.
The cable car was fun and the staff were lovely. Loads of Easter stuff going on, crafts, egg hunt etc.
The highlight by far was our cave guide Gemma, she was hilarious while also being informative and made sure she had full control of our large group of 60 people.
All the staff are a credit to The Heights of Abraham, well worth a visit.

Friendly, with an interesting tour of the caverns. The kids loved the cable car ride and the play areas. Avoid on bank holidays - parking is hideous.
