Start the historic Miner’s Trail at the Giant Waterwheel, from there you can work your way around the mine offices, explore the mine shafts and finish off in our mining exhibition. The Silver Mountain Experience is steeped in history, starting all the way back in 1742, and it is worth taking an afternoon to explore the natural beauty of the site as well as the painstakingly restored mining equipment.
DISCOVER THE HISTORY OF OUR MINE...
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, 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!
