Put aside the textbooks and bring the past to life at the Silver Mountain Experience.

It is rare to find a venue where a wealth of heritage features with such a rich source of learning sits side by side with fun, fantasy and interactive experiences. We can therefore tailor your school visit according to your pupils age range and study requirements.

This year we are providing a number of brand new features including four new interactive challenges that are especially engaging for pupils, a nature trail and a new quiz trail. Shroomy Circle is our new games compendium for up to 13 players, Shroomy Challenge is a test skill for up to 3 players, Giant’s Button Quiz is our new logic game and Giants Pan Pipes provides the chance to create some eerie tunes in Woo Hoo Wood.

The tried and tested favourites from last year remain of course with the tailored guided tour still available for educational groups where you can choose the mix of the tour as the heritage tour and the more entertaining fantasy experience may be blended into one learning but fun journey. The ever-popular gem panning activity has been expanded to include a “gold” panning area too and Woo Hoo Wood is bristling with things to do.

All of the ingredients that you would expect to make a successful educational visit are available at Silver Mountain and include:

– Free teacher familiarisation visits with on-site support/liaison available.

I wanted to email you and let you know how much the children thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the Silver Mines. In fact several of the children did say it was the best trip they had been on and we regularly go to lots of places with the play scheme.

Faye Ap Geraint – Rheolwraig Gwasanaethau Plant/Childcare Manager

We attended with 15 children aged between 3 and 8years old. We can highly recommend this place, the children thoroughly enjoyed, and one of their highlights was panning for Silver. The staff were fantastic and catered for all ages.

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, 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!
