I would highly recommend visiting Geevor to anyone who has even the slightest interest in mining and it's Cornish heritage. There is so much to do and see - we spent the best part of a whole day there (11-4) and probably could of spent longer still. All staff members were welcoming, friendly and very knowledgeable. Highlights were definitely the... More

We only intended to spend an hour or so at Geevor Tin Mine but ended up staying over four hours! It was a cold rainy afternoon and we were the only people there (apart from a young couple who later arrived and joined us on the underground tour). All the staff were so welcoming and knowledgeable about the mine, especially... More

A great day out. Loads to see and do. Absolutely fascinating to see the mine buildings as they were when it closed.

Geevor Tin Mine is well worth a visit. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable - we had a great show from Mark and his puppets! The kids were fascinated by the mining process and loved going into a real mine (except the 5 year old who made an early exit!). The cafe is also great with amazing views.

We weren't sure what to expect but the site was very good and the guide down the mine was very knowledgeable and made the trip really fun. The cafe was good value and lovely views and all the staff over the whole site were very welcoming and friendly. Will definitely go back again.

Spent a great rainy afternoon here, different educational/fun things happening through the week for kids. Spooky feel to the place as if people just turned the lights off and left in some of the buildings this place hasn't been over commercialised its a breath of fresh air.

I like a bit of industrial heritage so expected to enjoy my visit - I was not disappointed. More surprisingly my other half, who has no interest in it whatsoever, enjoyed it too! This was largely due to a very knowledgeable and engaging tour guide - the tour is part above and part below ground and ours lasted 1 hour... More

We arrived just as storm Doris was venting her fury at all things Cornish so were uncertain wether to proceed with our visit so retired to the cafe to decided over a pasty. BTW it has a great picture window to sit by during a storm. We decided to go for it although we would not be able to visit... More

This is a wonderful Cornish attraction that shows the way of life for the locals who worked in the mines when mining was what kept the whole community together and brought in income to the local area The Staff here are very friendly and helpful and they have great tour guides as well - they could have used the people...

Though we did not descend to the face the experience was great and so atmospheric. Worth a visit! Oh and lively cafe with wonderful sea view.
