  • A very fun and informative experience, the mine tour was great, gold panning with shiny flakes and a very impressive library.

  • Worth the journey, we were there for the first tour and it was just the 2 of us. Really enjoyed it, full of information and insite to the local community and the beautiful surroundings were just dream like on a warm day. The guide knew exactly what he was talking a about, open and friendly in with the conversations. The mine itself was really interesting though I'd recommend waterproof footwear at least. The library was really interesting and we were able to self guide around the rest of the museum. The gold panning wasn't available on the day we visited but we will most definitely be back. We enjoyed a pot of tea in the tea room and left to enjoy a local pub lunch.
  • Haven't been into mines yet as was off season when we went but the scenery was amazing it felt as if you travelled back in time, this is a must visit place if you like picturesque scenery, good history with plenty of plaques to explain its history. Just amazing place 😍
