  • Guided tour through genuine Freeminer working mine, real underground experience, safety kit supplied.  more »
  • Went yesterday to be greeted by a large visitor sign that says season ends in Sept (does not match the website info). Very disappointing but the cafe was open and was not disappointing.  more »
  • What an interesting place with passionate tour guides who are very knowledgeable and engaging. A real experience to go underground and see what it was really like mining in the nineteenth century - and they're still doing it today using the same methods. Excellent cafe with friendly staff too.Well worth the money.
  • Great experience, our 6 year old grandson loved it, along with the rest of the family. Good value for money and the tour guide was excellent. Would recommend but you do need to be steady on your feet and wear sensible shoes.
