  • A fantastic place to visit but make sure you have enough time as there's a museum, a drift mine, period cottages, and a fascinating library to pack in! Great coffee shop / cafe for lunch and / or snacks, gift shop with the usual tourist stuff and some stunning but reasonably priced artworks, jewelry, and other pieces. Highly recommended.
  • Great place for the whole family - loads to see and do (even on a wet snowy day like today!). Note: under 5s can't go down the mine and the railway is only open at weekends so that was the only disappointment. We'll visit again in better weather.
  • Really enjoyed my visit to the cafe, good staff ,good food (baked potato), sat outside in the sun for a while. Back on the m/bike. Good break.
  • Great place to take kids, try gold panning visit the mine & lovely food in the cafe. Recommend
  • Very interesting. Friendly and enthusiastic guides. Excellent cafe.
