Sygun Copper Mine is a Victorian copper mine which closed in 1903 but was renovated and reopened by the Amies family as a tourist attraction in 1986, focusing on audio-visual tours of the underground workings.

  • Great afternoon activity for the family. Quite pricey at £30 for the 4 of us, but we enjoyed what is quite an unusual activity. We were fairly tired after already doing a 5 mile trek that morning, so the 186 stairs at the end were punishing! Self guided tour, takes only about 45 mins to do the whole thing.
  • Was a great trip to Sygun copper mine. With it being 31c outside and 9c in the mine it was a cold welcome but in a nice way Is a nice little walk through there taking your own time to look about with buttons you can press that give you a little story about the parts you are in. You don't get that feeling of being underground it feels solid and safe in there. Although do mind your step and head whilst in there. The helmets are a must as you'll see when you head down there. The staff were real nice and with a nice little shop with lots of little things to buy. And a cafe to grab a night to eat. There is also a river walk you can go in that looks magical. I'll be heading back here again for sure
