Worth a visit

Definetly worth a visit, very informative and if they have an ex-miner talk worth listening to the conditions they worked under. Dont forget a trip to the cafe, best pasties in cornwall!!

Fantastic! Local history from neolithic to 20th Century all in one place.
Be prepared to spend more time here that you bargained on.

Pit stop after a lovely long walk from St. Just.

Good tour of the tin mine - very informative staff.
Cafe was lovely - good pasties, home made cake and soft drinks and also has a wonderful view out to sea.
The shop was interesting and had some lovely things to buy as a present to take home.
Loos were good.

A look back in time - Cornish Tin Mining

Facinating insight in to Cornish Tin working and the harsh working conditions of the time. Excellent underground guided tour and above ground workshops. Not expensive and a great way to spend 3 or 4 hours.
