Cable cars coming up to the heights of Abraham

The Heights of Abraham invites guests to leave the car at home and travel by train for the biggest discount.

The Heights of Abraham is encouraging people to arrive by train in return for a special 25% discount on cable car tickets during the summer school holidays. The new promotion is jointly funded by the Heights, East Midlands Railway and the Derwent Valley Community Rail Network.

Train travellers are able to pre-buy cable car tickets with a unique 25% discount during the summer holiday period. Cable car tickets allow free access to the attractions at the top including the playgrounds, guided cavern tours, exhibitions and live shows on the 60-acre hilltop estate.

David Thornton of the Heights explains

“It makes a lot of sense to highlight how easy it is to get to Matlock Bath via the Derwent Valley Line out of Derby. We urge Derbyshire residents along the Derwent Valley railway line to take this offer up too. It’s a great discount and a fabulous train journey past some terrific countryside.” 

Residents who live near to Ambergate, Belper, Duffield, Derby and other stations, will soon be receiving personal invitations through their letter box along with reasons why a train journey to the Heights should be on their timetable this summer.

The promotion also invites visitors to a special webpage ( to watch a video and answer multiple choice questions for a chance to win an iphone 13 pro max, Heights annual passes and other prizes.

Heights of Abraham Director, Rupert Pugh said

“We are especially pleased to be able to offer this great value for money opportunity to families this summer, and hope that they’ll try out the Derwent Valley line, perhaps leaving the car at home so it can have a day off too”.

The promotion runs until the 21st of September and special tickets can only be purchased, in advance, via the following website address:
