We visited quite by chance we couldn't get on the mountain railway so we started to look at what else was around the area. It's free to get in so that's a good start it's a good sized place with a lot of history. We started at one end and made our way around the whole area. There are places to stop and watch TV monitors that give more information as you move around. There are also houses set up as they would have been in the past, very interesting. It really makes you realise how hard life.

We spend a few days roaming Snowdonia and Blaenau Ffestiniog. We booked the Deep Mine Tour, the first in the morning as it was cheaper. We found it both informative and entertaining. Our guide explained his personal attachment to the mine and his experience working as a miner. He provided additional insight into the more historic matters related to the development of the mine and the communities that grew around them, provided real perspective to the harsh life of a miner and his family.

We took out children 12, 14 and 17 here as we had not managed to get in electric mountain (fully booked). I was really pleased with the place - you pay at the shop and put on hard hats - my husband kept bashing his head in the hard hat as the cave gets pretty low. Really wet so trainers are needed! You press a button that gives you the history as you go around and have a laminated card that tells you more. You can go at your own pace as its self guided quite a lot of steps though so you need.
