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. This autumn there are many activities for the family to enjoy including panning for gems, our quiz, our new QR trail, colouring-in corner for the younger ones all FREE with your entry ticket. Explore the mine and get hands-on in the hard rock museum. Talk to our tour guides about their time working as miners at Geevor. We know it's a bit further to drive so car parking is FREE for all of our visitors.

The Story of Geevor
The exact date when mining began in the area eventually operated by Geevor is unknown - but in the old workings in the Wheal Carne section there is a date of 1791 cut into the wall of the adit (drainage) level.
