If you are planning on travelling distance to attractions, we would recommend that you contact the venues directly in advance to avoid disappointment.

If you, or any of your party have a new persistant cough, or develop a fever of 38C, we would instead advise you to use the NHS's dedicated website for professional advice.

Killhope, The North of England Lead Mining Museum

The fully-restored waterwheel is the largest in the North of England. A visitor centre houses a display on the life of miners and their families. A woodland trail explores mining through the ages. Underground tours available in the region's most extensive show mine, where the highlight of the trip is a massive underground waterwheel.
