An amazing day out at this National Trust property and well worth paying for if not an NT member. We did both tours (booked on arrival). We got there at 10.30 opening time and booked the tours straightaway. While waiting for the first tour we...More
Visited today with two early teens. Fascinating and impressive guided tour led by Allyson who did a first class job and pitched it very well to all; adults, teens and smaller children. Thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend
Well preserved facilities covering mining from the Romans, Victorians and 1930's.
The underground tour is a must do, just bring walking boots as it's likely to be muddy and wet. The guide was amazing (Karla) and they managed to fit us on a tour at...More
We stopped off at Dolaucothi on our way back to our holiday cottage unfortunately due to the strong winds and heavy rain they understandably closed early so we just did a short tour but we were invited back for free the next day so we...More

We visited here as something to do on a rainy day and we are so glad we did. There were things to look at under cover but the best part was the tour of the mines. Our guide, Alison, was informative and entertaining and we...More
We visited on the wettest August day on record - and that’s saying something for Wales!
Our six year old son loved everything about the mines and really enjoyed going underground.
I loved reading all the information, facts and stories.
Above all else, my sons...More

We (me, DH and two kids 6 and 9) are leaving Ireland next week to spend 2 weeks in the UK. I have ferries, accommodations booked. I have a Great British Heritage Pass. What I am now trying to do is plan our days, what we are seeing, in what order, how we are getting around. I'll divide my trips into chunks so hopefully I can ask for advice in the right forum. We are not going to London and will spend most time on the west side of England before heading to Durham via Hadrians wall. Then...More

Don't miss - Big Pit, south Wales. One of the best 'museums' anywhere. Your children will gain an inkling of what its like to be a miner. Symonds Yat - beautiful spot overlooking River Wye (near Tintern). Might see peregrines.
