Me and my boyfriend had a little nosey around here while waiting to go into bounce below. It was quite a wet day but was fun standing outside and seeing all the zip liners shooting past above you. We didn't go on the actual tour down the mine as we were disappointed to see how expensive it was. It would... More

I have been on many underground tours and didn't think this was good value for money.the tour only took one hour and there isn't much above ground to keep you there much longer.wouldn't recommended this.

We had a great tour guide called Bryn who knew a lot and was excellent at his job. I found the tour to be done very well and it was a really good experience.

We only went on the mine tour as we felt the kids were too young for the high wire or trampoline experience (5 and 6).

Brillant tour, great insight into how life was in the days of old, well worth the money, make sure you set 3 to 4 hours aside for the tour and looking around, and it has a great cafe

Brilliant. I found the lights to be a bit too bright and blinding in some places but overall a fun activity.
