What's on?

A visit to Geevor is always immersive, fun and hands on and this summer holiday is no exception! There will be lots of hands-on mining activities that get all of the family involved. Not only are these activities great fun they provide a direct link to our mining past. All activities and events are free with site entry.

Check out the different activities below!

Panning for Gems

Definitely a firm favourite here at Geevor, panning for gems is a brilliant hands-on activity, whatever you find you can keep!

Miners Talks

We are very lucky to have some of the former miners still working and volunteering here. They love to share their memories and stories with our visitors. If you want to know what it was like to work deep underground and out underneath the sea, who better to ask! Miners Talks take place in The Dry the old miners locker room.

Geevor Quiz!

Our Geevor Quiz is a excellent way to learn all about the site. If you find all of the correct answers you win a prize!

Hand Drilling

Think you could cut it as a miner? Why not put your skills to the test and have a go at this real mining technique. Hand drilling was used by miners hundreds of years ago to break the rock.
