Half Term Activities

There's something for everyone

There’s always something to do at Geevor. One of the best places to visit in Cornwall, we pride ourselves on being a hands-on site, with lots of workshops, activities and games for the children to take part in.

Our volunteers love talking to everyone on site, explaining some of the history of our site and for some, sharing their stories of working in the mine.

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.

The stunning Cornish coastline around Pendeen was once at the heart of the Cornish mining industry, providing jobs and community around the tin and copper mines. Today, Geevor Tin Mine gives visitors an opportunity to visit a real mine and learn what life was like for a Cornish miner.
