Overall, a good experience.The expence adds up a bit if you opt for both tours(i would recommend the self guided inclined mine, if you need to make a choice).Plenty of car parking and no queues for tours.Trainers or flat strong shoes recommended.Unusual day out,(how many slate mines have you been down?).Probably not suitable for Granny unless she's very agile.On the down side,the guides could be a little more enthusiastic. Other than that,a good visit. (read more)

Fab tour 500 ft underground in the old mine workings, in one of the steepest inclined trains in the world. Children were transfixed by the stories of the Welsh miners and the way they had to live and work. Then took the other tour a mile or so horizontally into the mountain on another train to see how the slate was extracted and processed. Amazing that the place is also still a working mine after 160 years. (read more)

Llechwedd Slate Caverns are definitely worth a visit if you're anywhere near the area. Gives you a better understanding of the landscape and the people too! Some absolutely stunning light displays and intriguing stories! The Victorian village was fun as well-especially the Miners Arms! (read more)

No one indicating how long the queue was when we first turned up. When we purchased tickets we thought that would be the end of the queuing. They still kept selling the tour tickets even though the queue was so long.
Food place awfully organised, quality poor. Queued for 30 minutes to buy our vegetarian option. Was served meat bolognase. Didn't realise until chewing the first mouthful. I think they just gave us anything and hoped we wouldn't notice.
PS This is meant to be a top 10... (read more)
