Feedback from educational and group visits:

"I wanted to email you and let you know how much the children thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the Silver Mines. In fact several of the children did say it was the best trip they had been on and we regularly go to lots of places with the play scheme. They thought the guide was brilliant and made the experience. You will definitely see us again"

"We can highly recommend this place, the children thoroughly enjoyed, and one of their highlights was panning for gems and fool's gold. The staff were fantastic and catered for all ages. Well worth a visit"

"Everyone had a super time. A huge thank you to you all".
