This is an amazing place to visit. Friendly staff who are informative, and the area is well laid out. We have been up the Great Orme many times but never visited the mines, as we thought it was a children's attraction, (I think it was the sign on the bridge that made us think that), but this time we decided...

We went here with our college for the day and as we are a science course we were given a lot of scientific information. It was really interesting to hear about the history of the mines and to actually walk through the mines :) GREAT PLACE

We visited the mines yesterday, and found them to be very interesting, educational and a good way to spend a couple of hours in a beautiful place. However, one word of warning- make sure you take everything you pay for! We left yesterday after having puchased one of the small guide books to the mines. As all of our purchases... More

Hi Becky Thanks for your review; I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit. I have now spoken to the staff in the shop and they remember your booklet being left, they did try to find you when they noticed the booklet on the counter but they missed you. In a situation like this we would normally have... More

My children (5, 6 and 8) were desperate to go in a mine while we were in Wales and they loved this one. The lack of Minecraft-like minecarts was not a problem, they were instantly hooked. It's self-guided so you can take it at your own speed. The walk through the mine takes about 15 mins but you can do... More

The Bronze Age copper mine is a must see, reasonably priced attraction. We all came out from the mine and said, "wow".

We loved this attraction and my boys aged 5 and 12 both loved it. The video at the start was good for them to learn about the history of the mines and they enjoyed reading the info boards around the mine. All the lights in the mine make it really pretty in parts and we all loved it. Wish it... More

Really amazing to see and certainly underrated. Very well laid out and informative as you walk round you can also walk into the mine itself which we thought was great a truly awesome sight, also a small shop and tea bar outdoor picnic area and somewhere to eat indoors if the weather is not so good.Brilliant combined with the tramway...
