Good value for money.

Not for those that don’t like confined spaces. Amazing and educational insight into our ancestors engineering ability and determination. You can drive, walk or take the tram to this location.
We were pleasantly surprised to actually go in to the mine and get a real feel of the working environment. Great for all ages. Some tight spaces, inclines and stairs inside.
Definitely worth a visit. We will go again.

The experience of the self tour of the mine is excellent and not to be missed. It is most enlightening to see and hear how the mine was working by the local residents.

Went to the mine on a windy day and didn't know what to expect but it was a very enjoyable trip going underground into the bronze age caves which went fairly deep and where tight and low - the safety helmets came in handy as I banged my head several times The recent excavations to open up the caves are done very well and there are some pretty spectacular views

a first hand view as you go into the mines, and you get to experience what it was like in the mines which were also worked also by small children
