Self guided tour of a relatively small mine. Very informative. Located just outside Beddgelert, A very pleasant walk from the village, a previous reviewer obviously didn't consult a map as there is an excellent footpath with no roadwork required. The tour inside is only about 45 minutes. There are low passages and it is wet underfoot (it is a mine... More

We have been on other cave/mine tours before. This one was pretty good, you get given a leaflet with information on it rather than a guided tour which was good as you can go at your own pace. but it was still nearly £30 for a family of three and it was over in about 45 minutes.

Little museum on the way in was really interesting and we enjoyed the mine be aware there are speakers in the mine that play mining noises and explosions to add to the realism one of these made my wife jump out of her skin!!! (Very funny!!!) all in all a good little attraction!!!

We only came across it by chance as we were staying in a caravan site close by. We were drawn to North Wales with our two boys 12 and 11 by Zip World with intentions to then 'scale' Snowdon. But the weather was poor so when we saw the Copper Mine and thought we would give it a try. It... More

Walked here from Beddgelert which in itself was challenge no footpaths and crazy drivers, so not recommended. We didn't go in to the mine once we overheard the cost, so took a brief look around the tiny museum really with fossil articles not relevant to the mine here, they were found in various other places around the world. Very basic... More

Interesting, but having been I feel this is a bit overpriced. The impression from the brochure is that the cavern with the stalagtites is quite large - it is not. Nevertheless, well worth seeing. A bit annoying was that there was no-one checking tickets, so whilst most, like us, had paid for entering the self guided tour, others just helped... More

Hi, we visited here in the last week of August. The staff were great and we all found the mine very interesting! The only real reason for giving a rating of 3 is that £28 for a family of 4 for a self guided tour of approximately 35 minutes is just too much. I expected the tour to be longer... More

Great place to spend a couple of hours be prepared, wear some warm clothing and a waterproof. There's a good walk up the hill behind the mine. a little taxing on the legs but once you reach the top of the ridge it's all down hill and very beautiful.
