Went here with the family and the kids enjoyed it. A very interesting place which explains the process of the mines to the kids very well

Having driven past various times, we decided to visit on a day when rain was forecast - fortunately it stayed dry, as quite a lot is outside, although the walk underground is very interesting. It was quite incredible to learn just how long these mines...More

I would have loved to take my children (grandchildren now) round as I think they would love it. You'll need to carry the 5 month old.

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.
