Our Story

Underground Tour

Just like miners back in 1914, you'll board our mine train and rumble inside an early haulage tunnel. Inside, our engaging team of interpreters will demonstrate actual mining equipment, teach you about Britannia's quest for copper, and allow you to experience the mine's working conditions.
