  • Weather looked a bit iffy, so thought a detour underground might be useful. As previous people have commented, the musuem could do with some work, but the tour with Rob was very informative and he was...  more »
  • Very interesting underground mine tour, but don't go when raining. There were 32 on our tour and while the guide did his best it was too many. So go on a sunny day and you will enjoy it a lot more. Th...  more »
  • We visited the Poldark Mine a few years ago and had enjoyed it. There was a new member to our party so we decided a re-visit was due. The first observation was how much the entrance fee had increased....  more »

  • Well, I'm not sure where the negative comments come from regarding the tour, but I have to say being members of the national trust and having visited a few places, this is up there with the best. Thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish. The 2 ladies that greeted us, dealt with the admission and cafe couldn't have been more helpful and were brill. As for Percy our guide well what a legend. He gave a great tour and was full of stories regarding the mine and also his life and times. Ok some might say that £18 is expensive but what you get in terms of history and knowledge, makes it well worth it. Well done Poldark mine
  • If you are in the heart of Cornwall, visiting Poldark tin mine is a must. OK, the site could do with much needed TLC, marketing and investment. But it makes up for it in the sheer enthusiasm from the staff, volunteers and guides who take you down an 'once in a lifetime' visit down a tin mine. We didn't begrudge paying the ticket prices as you can easily see it takes so much money to run this mine. Looking forward to coming back in the future to take deeper steps inside this fascinating and historical mine.
  • £23.60 to get into a hole. Are you taking the Mickey? There limits to what can be charged, for example £5 for a slate caverns near Trago and it has an underground lake and boat inside. What a farce. I get what is posted quite aggressively and in a hostile manner towards the last low review regarding costs to keep the water out, but your a mine, and breaking down what you can do there Into smaller price increments to seem otherwise cheaper doesn't work with me. Was looking to go as a local but not at those prices, there is so much I'll be doing in Kernow while not spending his much at every attraction. 🍋
  • If you have an interest in Cornish history then you need a great mine tour, and Poldark Mine is the place to go to when the weather above ground is less than fabulous. Be aware to check tour availability before you go, also is a tad pricey, although our own Prince Charles should accept some responsibility for that!
  • Wow! Fab experience! Really was amazing place & mine tour was exciting, guide was informative with great sense of humor. Loved it there!
