Find a walk starting from
Car park, Honister Mines

Given the size of the car park (s) here I'm tempted to say you'll find ample parking up here. This isn't always the case though. The popularity of the mine tours and the surrounding fells make this a very busy place indeed.

You have two options here, the mines car park and the national trust car park next to the Youth Hostel. They both cost about the same, so it doesn't really matter which one you try first.


If you're wondering what it looks like, , , ,

This is the main car park next to Honister Mines

This is he smaller one behind the youth hostel
