We were staying at a nearby hotel who gave us a voucher for 10% off our entry fee. It had been raining heavy but that's nothing out of the ordinary here. We hadn't planned to visit but if you do make sure you wear decent shoes for when you go into the mine as it is very damp underfoot. Wellies would be ideal.
Our guide Julie was very knowledgeable about the history of the mine and the workers.
The cottages depict life over 3 different times, 1750, 1850 and the 1920's and shows the difference in the lifestyle of the workers. Very interesting with things you will recognise from your Granny's house.
The museum was good with lots of information available.
There is a gift shop too with lots of hand made goods.
