Interesting, yet fairly expensive. Not a full days visit!

Located not far from the village, interesting but short in terms of tour duration. Fairly expensive for what there is to see in the mine. Beautiful walk around the river or up in... read more

Visiting this mine was a real eyeopener. Very atmospheric, dripping, cold and so,so interesting. Wear wet gear and good boots so you can appreciate the excellent work that has been carried out, so that this mine is open to visitors. It makes you very aware of the working conditions that people young and old had to contend with but for... More

Great visit, not to expensive and they are dog friendly. There are a few walks around the area as well and some great views at the exit gate of the caves.

Located not far from the village, interesting but short in terms of tour duration. Fairly expensive for what there is to see in the mine. Beautiful walk around the river or up in the hills, with fantastic views of the local area and Snowden.

The copper mine trip was worth a visit but we did feel it was a little overpriced for what it was. We took our two year old and she was a little apprehensive at first (we had anticipated this!) but was fine once we got inside and actually enjoyed splashing in the water throughout the mine. Wellies are advisable!

Me, my husband and 2 daughters (4 & 12) came here and throughly enjoyed listening to the history of the mines I like the idea that it's a self guided tour as you can take your time and take it all in without feeling rushed.. The views when you come out are breath taking,. And you can even pan for... More

My wife and I enjoyed this self guided tour. It was well presented with lots of information. There was a bit of climbing up steps in the mine but nothing too strenuous. There is a cafe where we enjoyed a hot drink and cake. There is also a gift shop and toilets.

We went to the shop to get the tickets and the first sign was "self-guided tour"... The gentleman from the shop explained that we need to do it all ourselves... gave us some text to follow and we paid more than £7 per person including a 10% discount you can get from the rented house we stayed at. Once inside... More

This was an amazing experience - incredibly atmospheric and like nothing we had ever done before. But it is wet (drips from ceiling and running water/puddles on the floor) and physically demanding (you need to bend over in places and there are a lot of steps)

Two well sgned posted walks, one up the mountain behind the mine and one easy one around the lake. Nice little play area and a bouncy castle for those with children. We stopped here at the end of a lovely walk taking in Fisherman Path and Cwm Bychan thinking we would just have a brew & use the facilities but... More
