Visited with three children aged 8 - 13. All were interested throughout the 90 minute tour. The entrance fee allows you to re-visit for the next 12 months. We will return during the summer.

Very enjoyable couple of hours with two very knowledgeable guides. Got a real feel for what ironstone mining was all about. BUT I was freezing...take a coat, the mine was very cold. Well worth a visit.
