Free walk around a copper harbour. Smell the history, take in the breeze, taste the sea

Go here first! The visitor centre makes sense of the topography and the historical development of a creek into a "major" port. The cliff top walks and historical buildings add colour and context to the major experience -the free walk, a car drive away, to Parys mountain and the former copper ore mine workings. Be amazed by the scale of... More

This is really three places to visit. If you if find yourself on Parys Mountain looking at the wonders of the open mine, the sheer vast canyon, the stunning colours then you must travel a couple of miles on to Amlwch Port and visit the Copper Kingdom Centre, where you will find out all about the mining of copper and...

We visited the museum after going to the awesome Parys mountain as we were keen to learn more about what we had seen. We found it worthwhile to buy joint tickets with the adjacent small maritime museum, which houses a cafe, and covers Amlwch's maritime past. Admission to the Copper Kingdom includes audio guides and everything is well laid out... More

The colours, the walks and the eeriness of this place will stay with me for ages. Free parking, free access and clearly marked paths make this a really easy place to visit.

What a breathtakingly surreal walk! It was the closest I can get to imagining what the surface of the moon would be like - desolate but beautiful at the same time. There's no softness to the landscape other than the heather, but it's fascinating to see the range of colour in what I suppose is the "slack" from it's mining... More

Interesting museum location with a great walk around & commentary by volunteer Mike Prince plenty to see with recreations of workings & explanations of Mining by workers. Also visited nearby Parys Mountain a huge quarry where the copper ore was extracted even more impressive when you realise it was all hand dug by workers not machines!

I hadn't realised the importance of Amlwch in the industrial revolution before visiting this centre. The sheer scale and impact of the mining was immense and had global implications. The centre is sign posted for miles until you get to the port! Just park in the square and walk down the hill. The centre has a number of interactive aids... More

We spent a most interesting couple of hours exploring this old industrial site. The information boards provided us with detailed knowledge about the areas past.
