SCHOOL TRIPS

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.

Tailored guided tours are available for educational groups, where you can choose the mix of the tour. Choose our heritage tour, or add a more entertaining fantasy experience, which 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. We’ve also got a variety of other educational and fun actives on-site.

Education visits include:

  • Free teacher familiarisation visits with on-site support/liaison available.
  • Work/Quiz sheets provided on arrival or available in electronic form for teachers to print in advance.
  • Priority welcome reception and orientation briefing upon arrival.
  • Education Room available  for coordinating activities and a further covered area for taking picnic lunch.
  • Located on main road route (A44) to/from Aberystwyth.
  • Actor-led tours/fun & learning experiences.
  • Café with hot and cold food, drinks, ice creams etc.
  • Gift shop with small/affordable souvenir items 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.
