  • Excellent free museum with a trip into the mine. Arrive early to make sure you can get booked onto a trip! The guides are excellent and very knowledgeable. Great picnic area, and also a nice cafe.
  • Fantastic day out for all ages. The mine tour was really interesting i wished i had checked my wellies for leaks before i left home though 🤣. The kids loved looking for treasure on the washing floor the exhibitions inside the museum were all really interesting too. The cafe was well worth a visit the pies and treats were outstanding and very reasonably priced.
