Llechwedd Deep Mine tour


Buried deep under the mountains of Snowdonia lies an extraordinary story: it's a rock revolution that shaped the look and feel of the world as we know it. A way of life which built communities and defined generations of families in North Wales.

The deep mine tour at Llechwedd tells the story of the men who built this incredible industry which roofed the world. Experienced from the point of view of the mine workers, the tour uses cutting-edge enhanced reality technology to tell the story of their blood and guts, their determination and resilience, their risk and endeavour.

It also tells us a great deal about how our mining forefathers lived, the importance to them of family, friendship and community, and how their lives have shaped our own - and still do. Don't forget some waterproof and warm clothing as it is colder underground.
