Industrial heritage at its best. Great visit down mine ; lots of access to all areas and excellent "frozen in time" changing area. If you are in area please do go; very well worth it.

Great wander around a huge part of Cornish mining history. We were lucky on getting a two person underground tour with a brilliant guide. Well worth a visit.

Hello James, Dogs on leads are most welcome anywhere on the mine site and the surrounding footpaths. They cannot, however, go underground or in our shop and cafe. Best wishes.

There are slopes and steps within the mine but access as far as I could see was good yes there will be restrictions but I would not see this ruining a good day out.

Geevor is not associated with the National Trust. I believe it was initially developed by a collective of ex-miners, this review is not accurate.
