Masson Pavilion

Take a deeper look at the history and development of the Heights of Abraham at our very own film exhibition.

Visit our Through the Lens exhibition to get a behind the scenes look at several aspects of the Heights. We have three films showing all day every day. Learn how and why Britain’s first alpine style cable car system was built, all those years ago. Take a virtual tour into the Great Masson Cavern if you do not wish to go underground. See the Heights of Abraham as you’ve never seen it before, by watching our brand new film ‘Take Me Higher’, showing the Heights from a birds eye view, filmed by a state of the art drone.

In the entrance of the Masson Pavilion is a fascinating exhibition of aerial photography by John Beatty. All shot on a single summer’s day, the exhibition shows a patchwork of captivating images of the Peak District accompanied with words and poems by Sir Homfrey.
