Fab day out with my two boys age 5 and 8. Loved the Miner’s Life tour and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We spent over 4 hours there and had the weather been better (was damp but not raining) we would probably have been there longer. Loads to do above the ground. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

We loved our visit with my 6 year old granddaughter. Place was great fun, you MUST do the tours to really enjoy it. The great thing for us was how attentive and friendly the staff were. 10/10 to our Dragons Tale tour guide, a young lady dressed as a trendy elf!

We visited last week and had an absolutely amazing day. We arrived at 10.15 and left at 3.30, there was plenty to do and see including a nature trail, miners trail and quiz. All staff were fabulous and the atmosphere was great! We had lunch in the cafe was delicious too and well needed after our experience in The Black Chasm!

Me & my partner 'stumbled' across this attraction when we were looking for somewhere to go. We are so glad we did! We went on the Black Chasm tour which was fantastic! Our guide was brilliant at his role, and made the whole experience spot on! You can tell everything was well thought out and a lot of time and effort had gone into it. We had lunch in the cafe which was lovely then enjoyed exploring everything on offer outside! Fabulous day out thank you.

LET'S GET SOCIAL
The Silver Mountain Experience is a fantastic family day out in mid-wales, filled with history, myth, legend and more. We are very proud of our Welsh Mining Heritage, and our site based in Ponterwyd, Aberystwyth, lies the beautifully preserved Llywernog silver-lead ore mine. Spend an afternoon exploring this historic site, experience one of our guided tours and more. Children can enjoy our Dragon's Tale adventure, with a new story for 2018, whilst those who are feeling brave can venture into the mines and take the dreaded Black Chasm tour. As well as all of this, we have a variety of other interactive attractions such as Time Lab and our creative den, so why not join us for an afternoon of fun, deep in the Welsh mountains!
