Our trips take you into parts of the mine, hand-dug and worked by Victorian miners in 1836 and areas worked up until the 1970s when the mine was abandoned. As the door shut for the very last time a virtual time capsule was left behind which you can now explore. After years of research, our top Mine Guide will share stories of mining life as you explore the underground with some climbing and scrambling if you wish (these parts of the trip are optional). All of our trips run with a small group of explorers which means that we can largely tailor make them to suit your wishes, interests and abilities and those of the other members of your group. You'll discover old mining tools, machinery, drinking vessels, candles and cigarette packs discarded by the miners whilst stories of life in the mine spill out in such a way you can almost feel it creaking back to life. 100% authentic, adventurous and fun.
During the trips you're taken into the dark, damp tunnels and underground workings, in small exclusive groups by the experienced guide. There are 2 trips to choose from; the 2 hour Explorer Trip or a Half Day Mine Expedition. In addition we offer a Taster Trip for younger explorers and for those who'd like to try it out first.
