Winner of the Prince of Wales award for tourism, Sygun Copper Mine is one of the wonders of Wales – a remarkable and impressive example of how our precious industrial heritage can be reclaimed, restored and transformed into an outstanding attraction.
The self-guided audiovisual tours allow you to explore the old workings on foot. There are winding tunnels and large, colorful chambers, magnificent stalactite and stalagmite formations and copper ore veins that contain traces of gold, silver and other precious metals.
The audio presentation with special lighting and sound effects provide an enjoyable, interesting and realistic glimpse into the life of a Victorian copper miner. Sygun offers a rare opportunity for those with a sense of adventure and curiosity, to discover for themselves the wonders it still shelters after being abandoned in 1903.
