In order to help restrict the spread of coronavirus we have had to take the decision to close Geevor Tin Mine for the forseeable future. The welfare of our staff, the visiting public and our local community must come first in these extraordinary times. We trust that you will support and understand our decision. We look forward to the day when we can open our gates once more and welcome you to this fantastic place.
Easter Holiday Events
Get the most out of your Easter holiday at Geevor . Appealing to the whole family, our entertaining and informative events are FREE with admission.
This Easter holiday we will be hosting a wide variety of events with mining themes suitable for all ages.
Follow in the footsteps of Cornish miners!
The stunning Cornish coastline around Pendeen was once at the heart of the Cornish tin and copper mining industry. Geevor Tin Mine gives you the opportunity to visit a real mine and learn what life was like for a Cornish miner.
Put on your hard hat and explore the mine! We are a hands-on site and have lots of activities and events for the whole family to experience and enjoy!
Go Underground in an 18th Century Tin Mine
Enjoy one of the best days out in Cornwall for the whole family - filled with discovery, exploration and adventure.
Our guides will take you into 18th Wheal Mexico Mine telling the story of the mine where men and boys worked more than 200 years ago. Some will share with you their stories of working at Geevor before the mine closed in 1990.
