Gold mines in use from Roman times to the 20th century, set amid wooded hillsides overlooking the beautiful Cothi Valley. Explore the 1930's Mine Yard containing buildings and mining machinery, dating from that time. Have a go at gold panning and experience the frustrations of searching for real gold! Venture underground to experience the harsh mining conditions from Victorian times. Please note, underground tours involve steps and steep slopes. Appropriate outer wear and stout, enclosed footwear is essential.
