Set in a beautiful and dramatic valley, we parked and had to walk to the shop to pick up miners helmet with lamps.......I was expecting a guide but was surprised and delighted we could have free reign of the mine. Sensibly of course. We entered a long tunnel which then took us into the heart of the mine. Once there... More

We went as a family the day after we had visited Electric Mountain. It was more expensive to get in at Sygun, but there was less to see and learn, and it's a self guided tour. Whilst it is interesting to know the history, and they have tried to make the most of it, there are more interesting things to... More

This place has lovely staff, whom are willing and happy to assist and help before we went down the beautiful copper mine. Everything at the shop is reasonably priced.The copper mine itself is stunning and the self guided tour of it gives the perfect atmosphere for a few relaxed hours out and with a stunning view at the end of...

This particular 'trip down a mine' is unguided apart from some 'press and listen' buttons in situ. It therefore feels a bit more edgy that some trips, especially if there are not many others prowling around the caverns! We liked that. There are low ceilings and lots of steps to climb (about 170 I remember!). Maybe not the place to... More

Not very impressed with this self walking tour. Most displays are cordoned off which is understandable but the atmosphere of a mine is thus different. I was expecting they would keep the mine as what it was, natural. Even the stalactites and stalagmites were cordoned off. Such natural creations were left there to be observed and appreciated in some of... More

The sign says SPECTACTLAR.... mmmmm, not so! It was expensive for what it was. You walk yourself through and press a button to tell you a story. In reality, it looks nothing like the pictures on the leaflet. You feel rushed as there's no guide and people go at a different speed to you and they want to pass. When... More

We went as a family of four with good anticipation since the signage was of good quality. The man on reception was indifferent, curt and rather unwelcoming with his head buried in a crossword book when we arrived and left. The caves and tunnels were as expected, rather wet underfoot but really quite atmospheric. We were alone in the mine... More

I visited with my dad and my 3..almost 4 year old son.my son was a bit scared of dark at first but we decided to look for treasure and batman then he was soon ok with the dark. The stairs were fine we counted them all I obviously had to hold his hand. I think it's a really good place... More
