Great historical attraction. Fantastic visitor centre with ancient artefacts and a great model of a bronze age village. The whole thing was really well laid out and great insight into life in the bronze age.

After walking half way up the Great Orme we turned left and walked down to the mine entrance. Entrance fee was reasonable at £7 and they even served coffee if you fancied a cup. The tour starts with a wander around the Artifacts found and...More

Really interesting. Not a huge attraction, but worth a visit. Reasonably priced. Underground can be a bit tight in places. Look forward to seeing the next section when it is excavated.

Such an amazing place to visit. Really interesting on finding out about how they mined copper 4000 years ago. There is a tram near by that takes you from the seafront to the mine or you can drive up there to the car park.

What an amazing place and only discovered in 1987. To think that I walked over this area as a child on holidays to Llandudno. Anyone with a slight interest in history and archaeology would be fascinated. The cavern and labyrinth of tunnels are truly remarkable....More

No. During the winter months the mine is closed to visitors and the archeologists resume their excavations of what they believe is a very large mine.
