  • As a wheelchair user I couldn't get down the mine shaft but with the help of the guide I got to see everything else. Well worth a visit. Very humbling to hear how the miners scrapped out a living before dying at a very young age from the effects of mining.
  • Very interesting visit, film explains the history of the of the mine. Regular guided tour of surface workings and engine room. Small shop. Free parking for NT members. Allow at least one and half hours.
  • Small site but lots to see. Guided tour is very informative, small shop area that offers machine made hot drinks and a few pre- packed snacks. Also a small selection of gifts
  • Interesting place, informative tour. Great outlook and photo opportunities. Pretty poor cafe and shop, but that doesn't really affect the interesting experience.
  • This was a truly fabulous place to visit, if you are at all interested in how mining shaped the history of Cornwall. Our guide was a teacher who made the experience both interesting, involving and informative. Top rate !
