Au programme

Drive through CWM Penmachno, pass the quarry to the end, meeting point on the left, oppersite chapel. Come in wellies. The reviews capture the experience, please read below as written by people's experience:
Imagine driving over a single lane mountain track to a tiny hamlet, hiking up to mine shaft hidden in a forest. The host then unlocks the rusting bars & you walk in a dark tunnel dug 160 years ago, as fresh water streams out, taking you with head torches deep under the Welsh mountains & into abandoned caverns & waterfalls. It's magic, Alice can unlock. Hearty, wet, exciting & magical.
We really enjoyed this experience. It’s a fair trek to the mine but a beautiful one through the woodlands walking up a stream... uphill! The views were amazing!! The mine itself was great and very wet. There’s one part where you climb up a waterfall/steep stream! This was lots of fun but quite challenging and exhausting. Once out the mine, there’s another steep uphill walk. Alice is lovely, very chatty! She isn’t a fountain of knowledge on the mine like her husband, but clearly very experienced walking this route! It took nearly 3 hours as no rushing, no issues waiting for group, we looked around an abandoned village. No phone network here.Highly recommend this trip, very good value for money.
Other things to note
Wellies and water proof coat needed. Bring snacks and water.

I have been exploring the slate mines of North Wales for over 10 years. There is a nice mine at CWM Penmachno, it's an interesting route through, the mountain and out the top. Just need wellies, I provide hard hats and torches. I am a qualified mental health nurse and can provide encouragement and support. I am also a member of the British Caving Association. You need to be able to manage a three mile walk and stairs. I can also give information about the local community and it's history.
My son first went through this mine at the age of 3 years and my father in law was 80 years. I am happy to take children free on this experience.

We had a great time today. It's quite feat to impress my children these days but they loved the mine and village. The mine is really atmospheric - you can get a sense of what it must have been like to work there as well as the impressive feat of constructing the cavern system. It's incredible to think there is such vast and complex structure underneath the beautiful landscape. Walking up through the underground river was fun. While some bits you have to think about in general it feels pretty safe and underfoot isn't slippery as I presumed it would be. Mary was a great guide - really knows the history of the mine and is engaging and happy to answer all questions. The scenery out of the mine is lovely. We saw some peregrines flying on our way back too. I'd really recommend this tour. Because it's small and the cavern feels remote it's really special.

The experience was muchbetter than we expected. Mary was fantastic and very thoughtful as she paused regularly to allow me tocatch my breath. She kept the trip interesting with so many facts and wentout of her way to show us the miners settlement and the old mill and steam house. Thank you Mary. You made our day.

Mary is very informative and pleasant to spend time with, even when the weather turned for the worse, it was still a lovely experience. The location is wonderful also and packed full of history, we could've spent all day down the mine there was so much to see. On a separate note, when you are advised to take wellies.... TAKE WELLIES! you will be soaked and cold without them.

Wonderful unforgettable experience walking with Mary. She is very knowledgeable and sensitive to this precious environment. Gorgeous forest walk, tree barks covered in lichen and moss a testament to how clean the air is here. Followed by an exciting secret underworld, Mary breathes life into the slate miners working life. Excellent. Thank you 🙏😊

This is a great experience with Mary, very informative and easy to get along with. Mary was open to a variety of questions and was very reliable. Our experience went on for longer than scheduled, there wasn’t any rushing or anything. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would do it again! Thank you so much. Highly recommend :)
