This is the ultimate half day Underground Christmas Party Exploration.  Each Christmas Exploration will be individually tailored to your needs and wishes and can include underground adrenaline-pumping activities with ropes, ladders, climbing and scrambling around or something a little more sedate with a fascinating exploration of the abandoned slate mine and its explosive history. Lots of festive fun is 100% guaranteed!   
With half a day's exploring you will get to see parts of the mine that are rarely visited, navigate your way from one level of the old mine workings to the next with secrets of the mine's history spilling out along the way.  You will be joined by some of the best Mine Explorers who have extensive knowledge of the mine workings and its fascinating history. 
The vast underground caverns, hand dug by Victorian slate miners, provide a perfect setting to escape and enjoy some festive fun. Each Christmas Exploration will be bespoke but adventure, fun and a safe environment are 100% guaranteed. The Underground Christmas Explorations are available to book from now until Christmas.  You can book here (group discounts are available and calculated as you add your tickets to the basket) or if you wish to book a midweek Christmas Party Exploration please phone Mark Waite on 01650 511720 to find your preferred date. You can also chat with Mark to arrange your bespoke Christmas Exploration.  Individually tailored trips are available for a minimum of 6 explorers, up to a team of 40.
