Details

Set against the dramatic Cambrian Mountains, The Silver Mountain Experience is not your usual day out. - it is a visitor attraction encompassing a 250 year old Victorian mine, exciting Escape Rooms, Mining Museum, Gift Shop and on-site Miner's Rest Cafe.

Where history, myth and legend collide in a fantastic day out for the whole family. Embark on an adventure with a choice of guided tours discovering the history of the original Victorian Silver-Lead Mine, or experience Welsh fantasy and myth in one of the theatrical experiences.

Explore Welsh myth and legend in theatrical experiences such as A Dragon’s Tale and the mysterious Black Chasm (not for the very young or faint-hearted!).
