Our mine trips take about 90 minutes. We provide lamps and helmets. We recommend that you wear outdoor clothing and footwear. The mine is usually dry underfoot. We welcome all children who can walk and climb stairs - we don’t take babes in arms underground. 

We recommend booking in advance to get a mine trip - Call 07494 497868 or email to book your place. 

You can just turn up on the day – we often have places available. Check by phoning 07494 497868. 

Donations for Visits: We ask for a donation of £5 per person. We are a cash or cheques operation.  All your donations go towards the conservation of the Nenthead Mines site. We are an All-Volunteer operation
