This summer follow in the footsteps of Cornish tin miners

All of the materials we use in our daily lives originated in the ground.
Think about it: If it's not grown it's mined!
Geevor Tin Mine, on the rugged cliffs of the Tin Coast of West Cornwall, is a stunning place to discover the story of Cornish metal mining, one of Cornwall's great industries, at this incredible World Heritage Site.
We are a multi-award winning family-friendly heritage attraction and learning centre.

Plan your visit

This summer put your hard hat on and go exploring at Geevor!

Astonishing history in an amazing landscape

Geevor is a real Cornish tin mine little changed from when the mine closed in 1990 with a real underground experience. Tin and copper have been mined in Cornwall since the Bronze Age. Explore the mine, the mill and and the hard rock museum at your own pace. Your visit into 18th century Wheal Mexico Mine at Geevor will give you a real insight into working underground. For children and families there are also other activities to enjoy including panning for gems (keep what you find!), our mine quiz and other fun events for the summer holidays FREE with your entry ticket. Talk to our mine guides about their time working as miners at Geevor. Enjoy the dramatic scenery of the north Atlantic Tin Coast.
We know it's a bit further to drive so all-day car parking is FREE for all of our visitors.
