we really wanted to go down to the mine, but due to one of our party having limited mobility issues we were unable to continue our visit. But the staff were really helpful and explained the terrain. I've heard it's brilliant, but not suitable for limited mobility.

Enjoyable visit to Bedgelert and the copper mine. There is a beautiful view when you reach the top of the mine.

Well worth the money, nice warm day when me and the family went last year just the drive up to sygun copper mine I enjoyed, awesome scenery, but the copper mine is really great place to spend a couple of hours, fascinating to hear about all the history of the copper mine and the kids will love it. 10/10

We visited on a rainy day looking for somewhere to shelter and we are soo glad we did. It definitely put our modern way of living into perspective. Our ancestors must have been a hardy bunch, i can only empathise as to how difficult life was. There is no tour guide but i think that added to the whole eperience.... More

This is worth a visit. Cost £23 for 2 adults and a child. You go into the mine and take the tour at your own pace. You go deep into the centre of the hillside. There are 186 steps inside and it is very closed in so not for anyone with mobility difficulties or prams. Toddlers may struggle. At each... More

Me and my family of 3 children aged 12, 10 & 9 throughly enjoyed the tour of the Victorian Copper Mine. I would highly recommend this attraction on either a rainy day or sunny ( you can get out of the heat underground). The tour commentary tells the story of a Victorian Copper Miner and how he lived his working... More

It was amazing to see and interesting to hear all about the mines. There is also a fantastic mountain walk from the exit that is worth every penny just for the views!! Not for the faint hearted though, it is quiet steep!

It was a glorious sunny spring day in term time so no one else was there and we had the whole mine to our selves. My almost three year old thought it was very exciting. Only warning is there's a lot of stairs and a bit scary if you're afraid of heights but I gritted my teeth and went up... More

Great audio with lovely welsh voices. Sound effects are great you feel like you're down there in 1900 with the miners i thought there was a train coming... More

Had a nice welcome, cannot remember the price but I'm sure it was less then £10. Too around 1-2 hours to explore. Your given a hard hat and directions and off you go. You get o explore on your own which is good so you can go at your own pace. From the photographs you see on leaflets and online... More
