All reviews self guided tour hard hats gift shop children's farm farm park cafe next door well worth a visit the lower level own pace all ages rainy day year olds enjoyable visit great cafe half price great visit on site
This is a self tour attraction and appears to be well priced for what it is. We were given a Hard Hat & Torch before entry. Each area within the mine has an information board. I would suggest that an audio presentation like at other...More
Self guided walking tour round old slate mines, you don’t learn as much as you would with a tour guide but the experience of grabbing a torch and some hard hats and making your own way round is great fun. Super cafe next door too.

Really enjoyed this do it yourself visit. They give you a hard hat and torch and you just get on with it. Lots of information cards around and gives you a good idea of the working conditions, dangerous,damp and cramped. Don't think they would pass...More
