  • Well priced mine tour. Follow the route and climb ALL the stairs to see the mine and the beautiful features. Wear wellies, particularly if it is wet out - it will be wet in too! You come out half way ...  more »

  • We arrrived on a damp murky day to find a full car park as expected. We went and paid the entry fee, which was a lot for an unguided tour. The mine was busy and the concept of push button recordings d...  more »

  • An interesting self-guided tour through an old copper mine. It only takes around half an hour to walk from the beginning to the end, but it's an interesting time throughout and if, like me, you'd never been in a mine, it's sure to evoke wonder as you walk into the darkness. The view at the end is stunning too, and the gift shop is excellent (and modestly priced). Also, the bus ride to there is stunning (albeit slow due to the thin roads) and the nearby village is beautiful and a short walk away.
  • Truly interesting journey through the old copper mine. Plenty of steps towards the end, but really gives an impression on how hard work life must have been like back then. Views at the end and further walking opportunity make this area a great stop on a day out. Could have spent longer there for sure.
  • Really fun experience doning hard hats and roaming through the tunnels of the mine! Some incredible sights and the surrounding area is beautiful. Friendly staff and reasonably priced!
  • Far to expensive for the half hour it takes to explore. Do not recommend as a day out for the family. Metal detectors were rubbish and the food overpriced
  • Very fascinating to see how people worked and mined back in the day. More information would make it more interesting.
