Fairly small attraction but really interesting to walk through the ancient mine workings. The video at the start is worth sitting through as it puts it all in context. Basically, the bronze age started in the UK and metal from these mines was exported all...More

Very interesting, and a lot to see for a relativly low admission charge. Tour does include a lot of walking through tunnels and uneven ground, but a great experince.

To delve back in time and to understand a little more of our surrounding in a safe and relaxed way is always great. These mines tick all of these boxes and more. Oh and the kids - big and little - will love it!!

from the pictures it looks like there are a lot of steps. Do we have to use the steps or are there another options/ elevator? My mother cannot take the stairs.

The passages are too narrow inside the mine, there are not elevators available. There are no options outside either.

Hi David, The underground trip is 200 metres long, there are 35 steps down and the same up again. You need to be fairly steady on your feet to be able to manage the tour.
