  • Very Interesting visit, more for my husband than me. There are two sites of the mines and, unfortunately, neither of the engines were working when we visited. The staff were very friendly and helpful ...  more »

  • They were very friendly. On Tuesdays they run a children's science hands-on event which is great. Good opportunities for girls and boys to really get into the engineering side of Cornish mining. Loved it.
  • The property is just off Morrison's car park. A little walk to the property which is through a high fence. The reception also doubles up as a very small cafeteria and a shop. Once paid you are free to explore. You can also watch a film about the tin mine industry. There are toilets outside situated on the right hand side of the reception.
  • What a great place. You get to see two mines for the price of one! Point to note: it really is going in to the supermarket carpark towards the back to get to the other mine (this feels funny ~ 🤔 I'm not sure if this is the only National Trust which has this but it must be one of a few if not). There's lots to see here including; working machinery, dressing up, films, models of the mines. Really interesting. The guides are welcoming, friendly and helpful. I would recommend a visit!
  • Staff and volunteers were very friendly and knowledgeable, loved learning the history of Cornish Mining, lots to see, good experience
  • Great place for a visit - very interesting. Tour guide was entertaining and informative. Make sure to visit both sites either side of Morrisons.
