  • First time ever, we went down to the coal mine underground. We experienced old days of a coal miners life. Lou, our tour guide served his whole life in the coal mines. We really appreciated what they did in the past in very extreme living conditions. Friendly staffs who went out of their way to looked after us. Really reasonable price! Well set up facilities. Definitely worth to visit for the trip! Unique experience, especially to kids education.
  • Great value for money and definitely worth the experience. The mesuem part is free and you only have to pay for the guide. The tour guide takes you underground and shows you what the coal miners job was like and the different aspects of their job and life. Our tour guide was someone who had worked in the coal mines most of their life and it was very interesting to see. Definitely worth the visit and the guided tour.
  • Great half-day here with a fantastic underground tour hosted by a former miner and a walk around the beautiful grounds above. Well worth a visit and well priced.
  • Great experience. Historic. Recommended to take underground tour. Fascinating. Great guides.
  • Highly recommend a visit if you're in the area. Underground tour a must, tours are still run by former employees, some of which are in their 80s! The mine village is beautifully restored and laid out, and all attractions bar the underground tour are free.
