Really enjoyed the tour. Pleased we arrived early and went on the first visit of the day. The staff were very friendly, communicative and informative about all aspects of the mine past and present. The presence of art as an exhibition was unexpected. The atmosphere and lighting excellent. We did it as a birthday outing and it was a great start to the day, despite a storm and rain above, the mine was comfortable and pleasant. Would recommend it, Thank you!
