Enjoy stories of the mighty King Arthur who came out of the darkness to face formidable Saxon invaders, stories of dragons foretelling Celtic glory, of a giant so colossal he waded across the Irish Sea, of King Arthur's final battle - the Battle of Camlan and more; all brought to life through dramatic scenes, light and sound. This is a real adventure for young and old whatever the weather - a cool attraction when hot and a dry attraction when wet...Open: Daily 10am to 5pm from 31st March to 2nd November 2014 « less

Unless you have children who may find this interesting, it is a bit of waste of time. I think it is more about the craft shops dotted about the site. The walk through the cave was pretty boring, every now & again you were shown some models of various characters from the story of King Arthurs, all a bit tame... More

We were pleasantly surprised how professional this attraction was. The mine tour is great fun, full of story's and a ride in a long boat. The caves are amazing although alittle more effective lighting would enhance the experience. The little craft shops and cafe are lovely too. Thoroughly enjoyable mornings entertainment.

We enjoyed the visit underground which kept our 7 year old son entertained. The boat ride and waterfall was a nice touch and added to the idea of adventure. It is cold underground so do take warm clothes and sensible footwear, even if it's warm outside.

Really enjoyed King Arthur's Labyrinth. Went with our 5 kids ranging in age from 11 to 17 and they we're enthralled. A great way to spend a morning. Also really enjoyed looking around the craft shops. Definitely a more laid back day.

A great video to start, embarrassed to still be learning so much! Hard hat, warm coat, and into the depths! Scary enough, great boat trip, some sneaky tricks had us roaring with laughter! Great lighting effects, a few surprises, history, story telling, varied age group on the tour, all seemed to really enjoy it! Want to go back with a... More

The introductory video was excellent and everyone started to get excited, when we arrived at the boat trip the boat was... More

Interesting, but probably better for young families, I only went on this trip to kill some time before a pre booked caving trip. Our guide the 'Boatman' could of been a bit more 'in character' which would of made the experience a bit better.
