Silver Mountain Experience

Book Tickets Online


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.

Embark on an adventure with a choice of guided tours both above and below ground, discovering the history of our original Victorian Silver-Lead Mine, or experience Welsh fantasy and myth in one of our theatrical experiences.

A Miner’s Life is a guided tour which takes visitors on a fascinating journey through the oldest part of the uniquely preserved silver-lead mine.

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!).

Discover the Mining Museum and let your imagination run wild in Woo Hoo Woods, go gem panning, den building, dig for fossils and much more.

Note: Sturdy footwear advised. Dogs on leads welcome at surface attractions

The Miner’s Rest Cafe is part of the Silver Mountain Experience. Please check website for opening times and further information.
