a great way to spend an afternoon, especially if with young teenagers. A good blend of adventure and education the film show before going underground helps you make sense of what you see....and the history of the miners is especially well told. With all the additional facilities and attractions above ground, there really is something for everyone

Been here a few times. Great day out. The cable car goes slow up the hill so it's good for people like me who get scared of heights. Good views on a clear day.

Still questioning the wisdom of our decision to queue for an our to spend in excess of £65 on a two minute Cable Car ride with a quarter of that being left dangling & motionless two thirds of the way up,(very unnerving). Thought the return journey might be a little more enjoyable but it wasnt. The charge for this should... More

Had a great day out. Really enthusiastic and interesting tour guide for the mines at the top, which made the mines at the bottom even more interesting. Fabulous veiws from the cable car and the top.

went as a party of 8 and our 2 children loved the experience. Broomstick making and the Halloween letter hunt were very well done.
