My boyfriend and I visited here while in Wales and this was a great little tour. It was lashing down with rain when we went. You go to the reception building, pay, and they give you a little laminated self-guide sheet. You then go and collect your hard hats. I've got to say, this was the one part I didn't... More

As usual wet in Wales this is the only mine I have been in that I have had to go up and come out above the entrance. Lot's to see and need to be energetic but a great mine to explore

Visited the mine on the first day of 2015, and was a very nice and educative experience. We received all information from the lady who sales us the tickets, and we start the visit with the self guided tour. We liked the audio story, very nice placed on the key point of the visit. enjoyed the walk trough the galleries,... More

Visited with my family for an afternoon around New Year. The self guided tour through parts of the old mine workings were interesting and not over comercialised. Enjoyed waking through the workings and taking some time to see how the mine was originally constructed.

Very informative and interesting, doesn't take too long to complete the experience. Good if you have young ones that are losing interest. Worth a visit, with the beautiful bedgellert village close by, so convenient for a spot of lunch.

This is really interesting. You first don a hard hat and enter through an open, somewhat damp tunnel into the hillside and tour through the copper mine, low tunnels and huge galleries. At one point you have to climb a series of high, rickety-looking iron steps which are more like ladders and are faintly damp and rusting. You need to... More

Apart from essential 270 upward metal steps which my knees hated, this is fascinating and great for all ages. Inside a genuine copper mine with self operated narration buttons along the way, this is of real interest historically, culturally and geologically. You do need your hiking boots as it's wet in the tunnels and you are provided with a very... More

Decided to do this on a wet day and had read good and bad reviews. I really couldn't see what the negative reviews were on about. I found it quite spectacular in parts and took my time listening to the comentary during the selfguided tour. There are steps but a lot less than many monuments, churches and castles around. It's...

There are 187 steps in the copper mine so you really do have to have good walking legs. The mine was wet and water dripped down on you which did not matter they give you head protection to wear, it was really informative and interesting, glad we went.
