    What an excellent day out, even though it was pouring down with rain topside, down below it was all sunshine with our entertaining tour guide Paul Grace. We spent around 90 minutes below ground seeing for ourselves a history of coal mining in Britain from its 18c. beginnings to its almost-final demise. Do you know where the sayings ‘keep your trap shut’ and ‘he’s not worth a candle’ come from? Pity we – along with some other visitors on our trip – had to go to the local garden centre for lunch. Get the cafe re-opened! Still scores 10 out of 10 though.

    Excellent afternoon here. The underground tour was superb and our guide – ‘grasshopper” was informative and amusing. There’s a load more things to see and do above ground and yoh quite easily spend a good afternoon seeing everything on offer I will definitely be going again!

    Review for cafe and softplay. Good facilities and lots of choice, hot and cold, in the cafe. Soft play big enough for an hour’s fun and well priced.

    What a fantastic day we had despite the rain, the displays were varried and interesting. The trip down the mine was a real eye opener and made all the better for having an excellent and knowledgeable guide. Thank you Ian Steele. This is well worth a visit.

    Had a fabulous day, throughly enjoyed the underground tour, well worth the £3. The guide was very knowledgable and had a great rapport with the children. Had a snack at the restaurant which was very good value. Would highly recommend a visit here.
