DOGS AT THE SILVER MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE
We regret – dogs cannot be taken on any of the guided tours/experiences
As dog lovers, ourselves we are happy that dogs with “well-behaved owners” are otherwise welcome at the surface attractions under the following conditions:
Dogs must be able to follow the below rules;
· Be kept on a lead at all times (sheep, children and mine workings are not a happy mix for free-roaming dogs, however well behaved!).
· Be people-friendly and comfortable with lots of people around, especially excited children.
· Generally quiet and manageable by owners.
· Be cleaned up after by owners immediately after dogs doing their business, even in the car park where we recommend you take them for a walk anyway first before entering the attraction.
· If the weather is cool and suitable enough to leave dogs in your vehicle, please follow all sensible RSPCA advise about doing so e.g. windows partly open etc. We will allow you to exit the attraction as often as you wish and return free of charge after checking on your dog(s).
We reserve the right to refuse admission to dogs and owners at any time if we feel it is in the best interests of safety or the comfort of our visitors and staff.
THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN PLANNING YOUR VISIT
· Bring secure or sturdy footwear especially if taking a tour/experience as flip-flops or sandals are not suitable.
· Bring Crocs or old sandshoes for children if they are likely to paddle in the stream.
· Bring a light fleece, jumper or jacket if going underground as it’s always cooler there even on hot days.
· Book and pay in advance via the Internet to save 10% on your admission tickets.
· Bring items necessary for the comfort and hygiene (poop bags etc) of your dog if bringing one.
· Contact us before setting off if you are unsure about the suitability of the
visit or the tours for any medical or other condition that you think may affect your visit.

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!
