Llynwenog Silver-Lead Mine

Llynwenog Silver-Lead Mine Review

Outside the village of Ponterwyd, 10 miles east of Aberystwyth, this 200-year-old mine is now a museum where you can tour reproductions of mining buildings and some original machinery, including working waterwheels. Kids over the age of 8 can also enjoy a few harmless scares on the Black Chasm ghost tour, though very young ones will be better off sticking to the Woo Hoo Woods adventure playground. It's cold in the mine, even on hot days, so bring a jacket or sweater.
