Corris Mine Explorers can be explored in a maximum group size of 15 people (with group discounts available).

Three Corris Mine Explorations are available – a Taster Trip (minimum age of 8), a 2 hour Mine Explorer Trip (minimum age 10) or a Half Day Mine Expedition (minimum age of 13).

The Half Day Expedition enables the early and later parts of the mine to be explored, whereas the Mine Explorer Trip limits exploration to the earlier years of the mine but can include examples from the later days. If you have specific requirements the exploration can be tailored to suit your needs. The Taster Trip provides groups with a taster for what the main trips involve.

For further information or to make a booking please telephone 01654 761244 or email info@corrismineexplorers.co.uk.

Guided tour of Corris village and visit to Corris Railway Museum - £2 per person

There are picnic benches available at the Corris Craft Centre should you wish to bring along your own packed lunches or alternatively the Y Crochan café serves a tasty selection of hot and cold food and drinks throughout the day.

Please note that larger groups can be accommodated by splitting the group. Whilst 15 people enjoy Corris Mine Explorers, other members of the group can enjoy King Arthur’s Labyrinth, Lost Legends of The Stone Circle and the Corris Craft Centre or explore the village of Corris and the Corris Railway Museum.
