Great historical attraction. Fantastic visitor centre with ancient artefacts and a great model of a bronze age village. The whole thing was really well laid out and great insight into life in the bronze age.

Really interesting. Not a huge attraction, but worth a visit. Reasonably priced. Underground can be a bit tight in places. Look forward to seeing the next section when it is excavated.

Such an amazing place to visit. Really interesting on finding out about how they mined copper 4000 years ago. There is a tram near by that takes you from the seafront to the mine or you can drive up there to the car park.

No. During the winter months the mine is closed to visitors and the archeologists resume their excavations of what they believe is a very large mine.
