This was a highlight for us. We did the tunnel and tipple tours, and they were very informative and interesting (as well as good exercise). The guides do a really good job storytelling and immersing (literally) into the life of a early 1900's coal miner.

This place has a wonderful display of Vally history. The tour guides are very informative and offer it it fun ways. Our guides Peter and Bob knew a lot about the history of the mines and the valley we cannot wait to visit again!

The train trip wasn't very long but the information shared was worth it. If you are physically able do the other parts of the tour, you will learn so much. I didn't the tunnel tour as a kid and still remember it.

When we went it was extremely hot and not many shaded areas. If you want to make the most of it I recommend not wearing flip flops and wearing sturdy footwear. As we were in flip flops and we did the tipple tour which took...More
