Open Sunday to Thursday

Welcome to Geevor Tin Mine, the Key Centre within the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.

We are open from Sunday to Thursday from 10am to 4pm with tours at 11am, 1pm and 3pm.

In 2022 come and discover the story of the Cornish tin and copper mining industry at Geevor Tin Mine. Geevor is set in stunning scenery on the Atlantic coast and was the last mine to work the famous St Just Mining District. Explore the mine buildings at your own pace and take a visit into 18th century Wheal Mexico Mine where men worked 200 years ago.

During the winter months we are offering a guided tour of the Mill at 11am, 1pm and 3pm. If you would like to join one of these tours we suggest that you arrive 30 minutes before the time of the tour.

Please use our on-line booking system before you visit.

COVID update: We are committed to the health and safety of all our staff and visitors. Therefore we strongly recommend that you continue to wear a face covering while in the buildings and Wheal Mexico Mine.
