I've been down a coal mine on a school trip years ago, but this copper mine was totally different. The kids also found it interesting as they play minecraft a lot and so to see a real mine was very different. The pictures you see in the brochure / website showing the stalactites and mites make it look like some... More

Came to the area to walk etc. but for something a bit different we went to the Copper Mine. I was so massively disappointed with this place it's untrue - a complete rip off. Truly don't waste your time or money.

We found the mines very interesting,you take yourself through the caves and explore the cavern's,one thing with this mine is that you must be able bodied to visit and explore fully.

Very interesting and informative, and good fun. I got there early for opening at 9.30 and got 10% discount with their leaflet, so I went around on my own. The stairs were a bit of a task but its all part of the experience.

Good, informative trip through the old Copper mine. No guide provided, all information given by recordings at different stops throughout the mine. Will take about 40 minutes to go through at a leisurely pace BE AWARE that there are approx. 180 steps to climb inside (optional for the full trip) They are not all climbed in one go! There are...

Visiting the area with our family we decided to take advantage of the different attractions available. We did want to go to the Electric Mountain but due to having an 8 month old baby we were unable to. We saw the Copper Mine and decided to give it a go. Donning our hard hats and carrying the baby in out... More

We were warned well in advance that we would have to climb 186 steps to get out of the mine, the saving grace being that we didn't have to climb them all at once. Our way around was well lit, and there were buttons to press for commentary on what used to happen at the point at which we were... More

We have visited a few mines so knew what to expect, this was a nice self guided tour that wasn't sanitised, so it was small, damp and dark and that's what makes a great visit. This is a mine and mines in those days were small and damp and dark. We had a great time looking round the tunnels and... More

Never visited anything like this before so we thought we would give it a try.The staff at the shop were very polite but you have to pay £1 fee to use your debit card to pay for admittance (forgot to go to the cash till). Once fitted with a hard hat we entered the mine,down a long passage into the... More

Wonderful insight into the working of an 19th century copper mine. Tunnels are very narrow and if your over 6ft as I am IT can be uncomfortable in places. Thoroughly enjoyable and a bargain at only £8.95
