  • We were in the mine with his wife and to be honest I have not counted for nothing, but as soon as we walked to the center of the mine once I changed my mind. Cool dark narrow corridors, water dripping from the top and the smell of these rocks. As for me a revelation.

  • Great historical site. Have been here a few times and they've opened up even more of the mine since my last visit. Some may not find it suitable due to narrow walkways, low ceilings and low lighting. However, I'd recommend a visit if you're near the Greater Orme.
  • Fantastic place, incredible attraction. Definitely go along. Take your time, when in the mine especially, look at the old ancient chisle marks. There were loads of families just walking past stuff just enjoying going through the caves however this meant; 1 they went through fairly quickly 2, they missed all the little bits and details. Definitely take the family, read all the information boards and take the experience and facts in. You can also part with your money at the gift shop which is full of lovely trinkets. There is tea/coffee and snacks there as well and a second hand book shop. Definitely worth a visit!!
  • What an excellent experience. Full of ancient history. Terrific family day out.
  • All the years I have walked and driven past the Great Orme Mines! Not today, very informative & you will need your hard hat! Provided of course.
  • This 3,500-year-old copper mine lies beneath a hillside in Great Orme, Wales. The mine, deemed the largest prehistoric copper mine in the world, is estimated to have produced enough copper to make nearly 2,000 tons of bronze. One archaeologist dubbed it “the Stonehenge of copper mining” because of it’s historical grandeur.
