I thought the entrance fee excessive for the attraction but made more so by the excessive charge the owner applied to all credit and debit cards. The museum part was very small with limited exhibits

This was ok but definitely not worth the entrance fee. the exhibits are few and far between and look like a child put them together. The stalactites stalagmites were very underwhelming and the open cast iron stairs were a problem for my dog who had to be carried up these 180 odd steps wish we had been informed before hand....

Huge car park and well signposted. You buy tickets from the cafe/gift shop. It was about £8 for an adult. They do take credit/debit cards but charge you £1 for the pleasure. The cafe only takes cash. The mine tour is self guided. Id recommend decent shoes as the mine is uneven and wet in places. It takes about 40mins... More

We were due to climb Snowdon but had to find alternatives due to very bad weather! So we drove out to the mine. Paid £18.50 for two adults and went out to explore. You are given a one page guide directing you on where to go and hard hats. The tour is self guided so you can explore at your... More

mine tour takes less than an hour. Very atmospheric. Self guided tour. Well lit path, but torch would be handy to see into the nooks and crannies. Tour starts at ground level and progresses up. Stairs are staggered - less than 200. Basic introduction to mining. At the end of the tour you have to walk down the hill outside... More

Very interesting and spooky place to visit. The water dripping from the ceiling, the cool air and the old workings created a realistic impression of what it was like to work in a victorian mine.

Our party of 7 ranging in age from 62 to 2 all really enjoyed our visit to Sygun. Because it is self-guided it was ideal for the youngsters as we could go at the pace that suited them, so I would thoroughly recommend it for families. Do ensure you have the right footwear though, walking boots or wellies would be... More

Pretty interesting but the price is too high for what you get to see. It's no Chedder Gorge. The gold panning offered which we were interested in looked like an amateur set up and more for kids I guess.

We went to the copper mine because it was raining and we wanted something indoors to do. It turned out to be just as wet inside as out. The walk up the hill to buy the tickets was steep and over loose ground and we were out of breath by the time we got there. This should have told us... More
