  • Well set out, self guided tour was great so you can stop and look longer if you wish. Fantastic view when you exit the mine.  more »

  • I had a great couple of hours with my son. We enjoyed the mine tour and gold panning. We know what gold rush means now lol. Great gift shop for kids with gem stones and copper samples. My 12 old boy absolutely loved it.
  • A real interesting place, you can even take your dog inside. Well worth a visit! As they say a picture paints a thousand words so here you go..
  • Whether you're actually interested in copper mining or just fancy exploring underground, Cygun is a couple of hours well spent and can be a pleasant escape from the weather outside. It's the only way to see it since photography is banned inside.
  • 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.
  • Totally unforgettable! Was back in Waunfawr with my family and found the copper mine by accident. I was most impressed by the improvement in tourist facilities in Wales since my childhood.
