Llanfair Slate Caverns
Upon buying your tickets to the Slate Mine you will be issued with a quarryman’s helmet and a torch and you make your way into the mine through the main tunnel, under the twin arches of the crypt and into the lofty cathedral cavern. Walking along tunnels dugout by the miners by candlelight over 100 years ago you will read all about how the mine was worked.
The caverns are comrpised of nine chambers, each with a different theme.
The mine has also been used for filming part of the film First Knight staring Sean Connery and Richard Gere.
It is advisable to get well dressed as ground water can drip inside the caverns and it is very wet inside.
