Winner of a Trip Advisor Travellers' Choice award 2021 and Best Experience / Activity in Mid Wales 2019/20
For groups of 6+ up to a maximum of 40 explorers, you will delve underground into the disused and abandoned world of the Welsh Slate Miner. Kitted up with a hard helmet, cap lamp, harness and safety belt you will have the optional use of ropes and ladders to explore your way through the caverns and tunnels of the old mine workings.
First worked in 1836, Braich Goch slate mine was finally abandoned by the miners and the door creaked shut in the 1970s with everything left behind leaving a virtual time capsule that you can explore.  All of our Group Explorations are individually tailored for your groups' interests, be it historical, adventures or something more adrenaline pumping.  Please call our Mine Guide, Mark Waite, on 01650 511720 to discuss your Groups' interests and requirements. Group discounts are available and calculated as you add your tickets to the basket.

This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:

  • Corporates
  • Families
  • Hen / Stag parties
  • School groups
