  • Amazing place. They are starting to spoil it with new modem buildings. When it should be kept as a lovely old mine with how the good old times and memories used to be. Lovely old houses. That should be kept that way. Because they still use steam trains. And you can go down the big pit for free
  • I loved this place but I can see it doesn't appeal to everyone hence 4 not 5 stars. If you are interested in history, engineering or heritage this is a must see place. In addition to the historic iron works there are some great period cottages with period furnishings.
  • An amazing place to visit. Gives you an idea of the poor working conditions. Well worth a visit. An added bonus - no entry fee!
  • Fantastic place to visit. Staff were very helpful and place was extremely interesting for young and old. Spent over 2 hours exploring site. Highly recommended and is FREE being a world heritage site
  • Lovely place. Very interesting. Friendly staff. Dog allowed on lead
