Mine Exploration Tour

Supplied by: Corris Mine Explorers
Attractions & Experiences

First excavated in 1836, the Braich Goch Slate Mine in Mid-Wales closed around 40 years ago. Take a trip into the mines with Corris Mine Explorers and see first-hand the kind of conditions miners had to work in. 

At the peak of the mine being worked in 1878, 250 men were mining for slate in the dark and damp underground tunnels. Spookily, as you explore, it feels like the miners have just downed tools and finished work for the day. Come across tools, machinery and personal artefacts that have not been touched in decades, and in some cases, over a century! 

All explorations of the mines are guided by professionals with full health and safety equipment provided depending on how far into the mine you would like to venture. The guides will also amend your visit to ensure it is suitable for your friends and family. Due to this, pre-booking is essential.
