Honister Slate Mine: If you re feeling adventurous, you can see the mines at first hand by taking a underground tour.

This excursion into the subterranean world provides a 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 wont 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.
