Embark on an enchanting journey through the heart of the Lake District as you join our guided walk from Elterwater to Cathedral Quarry Cave. Great for beginners. Minibus transport from Manchester or Lancaster and guide included.
This immersive experience offers a unique blend of natural beauty, local history, and geological wonders that will leave you captivated from start to finish. The trail leads you into ancient woodlands, where the whispering leaves of centuries-old trees create a soothing ambience.
Cathedral Quarry, your ultimate destination, awaits with its awe-inspiring majesty. This incredible cavern, aptly named for its soaring, cathedral-like ceiling, was created by the extraction of exquisite green slate. Towering pillars and stunning chambers make for an unforgettable sight. Marvel at the play of light and shadow within the cavern's depths, creating an ambience that's both mysterious and magical.
