Visited on a wet rainy day and were pleasantly surprised. A self-guided tour with push buttons around the path to play information in the form of a recorded story. Quite a few steps to reach the top but the view from the outside of the mine is well worth it!

not a great deal to see in the mine, the website makes the stalagmites and stalactites appear to be in a large area, actually you look through some metal bars at a small chamber, 180 odd stairs to climb but actually you mostly see tunnels. Not expensive but was badly disappointed. The walks from here are good but not really... More

After a very long journey to take my grandson to see a mine which looked great on website and brochure,, paid £28 for family ticket , took 15 mins and that was because of little ones ... nothing to see, waste of money and would not recommend at all, i have never left a comment before but was so disappointed...

Fantastic mine to explore and wander through at your own pace. Near to picturesque Beddgelert too. Easy to find and very near to snowdonia. As it's a mine of course you have to duck down but what made it for us was that out was dog friendly (although you do have to carry your dog's up the steps ) and... More

this was an interesting place to visit.not cheap though.The stairs in the mine steep ,so not for the faint hearted ,but still worth a visit.The views when you come out at the top are wonderful and there is a nice village close by.lovely place to camp if you like that .I am an hotel person.

#340 for a family of five to visit this place. No real artefacts on copper mining on display, those in the entrance are from all over the world. Then a walk into the mine with FOUR minor and very poor displays and that's it! Not worth the bother going to visit at al, dont be fooled by the glitzy photos... More

We got 10% of the ticket price as we arrived before 10am, although we then had to pay £1 surcharge for using a card payment. We then went and found a suitable hard hat, and that was your ticket to get in. On entering the mine it felt quite damp and cold, and you needed to duck for about 2... More

Had a fabulous visit to this mine! We took our little dog with us and there was also a lovely cafe there too! the stairs in the mine can be narrow though and not best for anyone who suffers from asthma as there are quite a few and they do get steep. There is no guide on this tour, you... More

Very interesting visit, stay away if you have trouble walking, lots of steep stairs in mine and steep slope on exiting mine, car park full of pot holes, mine itself very interesting, cafe and gift shop fine, needs more toilets, cold tap only, no soap in dispenser and hand dryer didn't work. Not a patch on slate mines in Blaenau... More

My husband and I visited yesterday after a morning of hiking snowdon! Honestly I was a little hesitant but ended up thoroughly enjoying myself as did the hubby!! The chap who sold us our tickets was very welcoming and friendly and we found that as an attraction this wasn't too expensive in comparison to some of the other things we... More
