Events at this Venue


From mince pies and mulled wine, to meeting elves, there is something for everyone to enjoy at The Silver Mountain Experience on December 17, 18, 20, 21 and 22, with free entry to the attraction.

There will be chance for explorers to discover the beautifully preserved Victorian silver mine with its stunning backdrop and fascinating history. Visitors will be able to embark on a Miner’s Life Tour, where they can find out all sorts of interesting facts about the history of the mines for an additional charge.

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a visit to the Elves Workshop and Santa’s Grotto! As Santa has a lot of ground to cover during his big day, the attraction is a designated Santa pit-stop for Wales.

Visitors will be able to see where the magic happens, as the elves lead a tour of the ‘behind-the-scenes’ workshop before meeting Santa in his grotto. Children will receive an early Christmas present from Santa for an additional charge.

As well as being able to explore The Silver Mountain Experience, visitors will be able to enjoy a host of Christmas themed activities, including a Drawing Den, decorating a Christmas cookie and a Christmas Quiz Trail challenge.

Visitors will also be able to pick up fantastic value return tickets for the 2017 season, or tickets for the popular Terror Mountain Halloween event.

Whether you are looking for a family day out filled with festive fun or wanting to explore the beautifully preserved silver mine, there is something for everyone this Christmas at The Silver Mountain Experience.
