This is a nice attraction just outside of Beddgelert and interesting to walk through. Lots of little caverns and old workings with period dressed dummies re-enacting the lives of miners. It is a mine so mind your head, you have to wear a hard hat. Guides sheets guide you to audio spots and are easy to follow. In places there... More

We took a 5 and very capable 2 year old here, particularly as they are adventurous, and the eldest wanted to go into a mine! Don't expect them to come out clean though! My husband and myself came out unscathed - but owing to the wet conditions inside and out they looked as though they really had been mining -... More

Nice to do. Attention: at the end the exit is on the mountain. So when it is raining, you' re becoming still wet!

We visited the copper mine on a very wet summesr day here in North Wales. After paying for entry and collecting our hard-hats, we followed the directions on our laminated guide sheet to the mine entrance. Be warned, if you're a tall man like me, you're going to be glad of the hard hat! The mine is quite cramped in... More

The tour around the the old mine workings is self-guided, with 5 points where you can select a commentary which is very good and explains how the miners worked in the past. Very informative. It lasts around 45 minutes depending on your speed of walking and climbing stairs. There are two downsides, the first being that there are 186 steps... More

We did really enjoy the mine but as previously stated there is a £1 surcharge on card payments and considering the cost to get in we felt that this was unfair. Quite expensive considering its self guided but then again the insurance and running costs are probably quite high so all things considered we enjoyed it. Was only there for... More

This is an interesting site....for over £24 for a family of 3, self guided tour and only lasted around 45min, I think it's rather expensive. Also if you pay by card, they would charge you £1 surcharge. We visited National Slate Museum afterwards and it was a very interesting place with free admission....we felt a bit better afterwards with the... More

We'd 'done' the Ffestiniog railway in the morning and had had lunch at Porthmadog station (Spooners): on a whim, and because rain threatened, we went to explore the copper mine. We're both in our seventies so the man at the ticket office warned us that there were (67 IIRC) steps on stairs in the tour. We managed just fine. We... More

It takes about 20 minutes to walk through and there is nothing to do after that. We paid £34 for family ticket! £34 for 30 minutes attraction.
