A remarkable underground experience. Abandoned in 1903 but now reopened to visitors, Sygun tells the story of Victorian miners. Nowadays, it’s hard to believe that such gritty industrial heritage exists amongst so much natural beauty.

Take a self-guided tour of the old workings. See audio-visual presentations and stalactites and stalagmites as well as copper ore veins containing traces of silver and gold. Children's adventure playground, museum and panning for gold above ground.
