  • My wife and I visited 3 days ago. Gave a good feeling of what it was like to work in the mine. Didn't expect the site to be so extensive. You will need the helmet that they supply when underground.

  • What a wonderful place to visit, incredible to think that it was only discovered 35 years ago. So much more to investigate but such a wonderful heritage. Wow is all I can add.

  • A Must see for anyone interested in Ancient history. Our tour guide recommended this site as we were staying in Llandudno. The site surpassed expectations and you only get to see a small fragment of the caves! They have a wonderful museum that explains the site and what an important find it was. The main chamber was so massive that it was hard to capture how impressive it was in a photo. Go see for yourself and be amazed at how prehistoric peoples carved these huge caverns out by hand.
  • This is a great place. The shop has loads of books about Wale's history, place names and places to go... maps of walks and cycle rides, all the the tourist stuff and loads of stones and jewellery items. Really is something for everyone. The exhibition is eye opening... The conditions that the people worked in and the ingenuity they had is incredible. The exhibits, videos and text around the site were interesting and educational. The chance to actually go unethical and see where they mined was fantastic... It really Bright to life the scary and dark and damp conditions kids as young as 5 worked in underground. Well worth a visit.
