Half Term Activities

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.
