Frequently Asked Questions


Are you doing Underground / Mine Tours?


No - the decision has been made not to do our Underground Tours . This is due to a number of reasons.

No - there is no need to pre-book tickets, just turn up on the day. However, tickets do need to be booked for our very popular Santa trains.


Do you have a cafe?


Not at present - this is something we plan to address when we have our new Museum building. We can offer take-away style tea or coffee and usually have a selection of locally produced traybakes available. We also stock cold drinks, ice creams, chocolate and crisps.


Do you have toilets?

When can we book to come and see Santa?


We will announce dates for our popular Santa Specials in late summer. We aim to have an online booking system that will go live in September.
