THE SILVER MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE

Where history, myth and legend collide in a fantastic day out for the whole family. Embark on an adventure with a choice of guided tours discovering the history of our original Victorian Silver-Lead Mine, or experience Welsh fantasy and myth in one of our theatrical experiences. So what are you waiting for? Come and explore

Set against the dramatic Cambrian Mountains, The Silver Mountain Experience is not your usual day out.

Experience guided tour A Miner’s Life, which takes visitors on a fascinating journey through the oldest part of the uniquely preserved silver-lead mine.

Explore Welsh myth and legend in our theatrical experiences such as A Dragon’s Tale and the mysterious Black Chasm (not for the very young or faint-hearted!).

Interactive attraction Time Lab features a fun show for all the family, delving deep into the freaky facts and twisted tales linked to this unique silver mine.

As well as our fantastic theatrics, you won’t want to miss what else we have on offer. Discover our Mining Museum, let your imagination run wild in Woo Hoo Woods, go gem panning, den building, dig for fossils and much more.

So what are you waiting for? Come and explore!

Note: Sturdy footwear advised. Dogs on leads welcome at surface attractions

With a Gift Shop, the on site Miner's Rest Cafe and beautiful hillside views, Silver Mountain is well worth the visit!
Open throughout the year. Please check website for opening times and further information.
