Ok but expensive

Good but quite expensive for a short visit! Also charge you £1 to use the card machine after paying almost £30 for 2 adults and a small child.

I really really enjoyed this activity and would recommend it to those who love exploring and something that's a bit different. We visited on a Sunday afternoon. It was quite busy but not heaving. After paying at the desk and collecting our safety helmets we walked down to the entrance. It was a bit chilly so I'd recommend taking a... More

It's a self guided tour where you press buttons at various stages to get the story of the mine. Walk into long tunnel and up many stairs up the mountain. Interesting. Great wet day activity. I went on my own on a sunny day and was the only one in the mine for half the tour. Gets busy on rainy... More

An interesting place to visit. The customer service is very good, informative and friendly. The mine itself gives a real feel for the history of the place. However, for the size and duration of the tour, it is over priced. At half the price, I would fully recommend it.

My husband and I visited the Sygun copper mine on our recent holiday. We were pleasantly surprised by the self guided tour of the mine. Very interesting. Lots to see and learn. It's been very well done and thought of. Staff at the centre were friendly and helpful. Lovely shop to browse, and a tearoom which we didn't use as... More

There are many mines scattered around North Wales, so I wanted to some of them and Sygun happened to be well placed for other attractions we were visiting that day. I was very glad we did stop in as it was most interesting taking the self guided tour through the mine and the information provided within the mine was well... More

Stopped here whilst on a day out in Beddgelert. Reasonably well done, the commentaries on the mine tour are informative and some of the stalactite caverns are impressive. Access is a bit awkward at times as you'd expect with low ceilings but manageable. Not the finest attraction you'll ever go to but worth a visit if you're in the area... More

The self-guided tour around the copper mine is really interesting, and although the steps might be difficult for some people to navigate, it's well worth doing to learn some of the history of the industry. On exiting the mine, we were welcomed with the most incredible views of the valley, which were well worth the trek through the mine. The... More

Really fascinating to go into the old copper mines, spent a couple of hours there. The commentary is a bit dry in places. There is a nice riverside walk (when not bucketing it down)

Really friendly staff set the tone for a great little tour. Make sure you wear good footwear that doesn't leak ! A fair bit of stooping if you are tall like me but my wet feet pulled me down so I didn't bump my head (hard hat) too much :-) Take your time to listen and learn, it is very... More
