The mine was a great experience. All the family from a two year old to my teen daughters enjoyed going down the mine. We walked around on our own. It was not too busy. Lots of information around explaining dates, history of the mine etc. Good shop. Hard hats supplied.

One for the history buffs . You can go back 2000 years on The Orme, I love the history. It can be a bit windy up here on the Summit, but in the summer the views are outstanding

Interesting display in the copper mines in Llandudno, showing different pieces of copper when they used to mine there.

Going deep underground along narrow passage ways, is perhaps a little scary for the feint hearted, but this is an amazing historic experience. And more is still being found. A great few hours especially for children.

I spent a great couple of hours exploring the depths of this great attraction. It was very educational and interesting seeing the conditions people worked under all those years ago
