Newest Review: ... health and safety would mean that the tour would be a little too watered down, and maybe not that exciting. But it was explained that once a site is registered as a mine, then it stays as such, and it is still registered as a mine today, and subject to mining law. The start was a sedate walk down into the mine, via a newly built passage-way, as before the miners would have climbed down ... more

This review is of the Poldark Tin Mine in Cornwall, a tourist attraction where you can take a tour down the mine to see what working there was like. The mine was formerly called the Wheal Roots mine, but was changed to Poldark after the books and television series, which was filmed here. The attraction was opened in the 1970s, not as a mine, but as a site for the owner's steam engines and related exhibits. Only when developing an area for these did they break into the old tin mine workings, and substantial work began in opening this part of the site up to the public. Firstly, I would say that this is one of the strangest tourist attractions that ... Read the complete review

Well, Poldark Mine what can I say! I was very upset when me and my family visited last summer. A dead old theme park come tin Mine was what we found. Not much to do really but what could we do Flambards was closed for the day. Our only option was to come to Poldark and I have to say a poor decision which has left my son and my eldest daughter scared for life. But on the plus side, the chef Fred at the onsite cafe served up a great meal and saved the day! Cream teas and a lovely winter soup!! So in conclusion a mixed bunch.Susan Wright, from West Yorkshire

Having visited Poldark mine for the second time in fourteen years, this time with my Sister and her two young children, I was dissapointed to find the removal of certain childrens attractions including but not limited to the plastic ball play pen. It seems that these childrens facilities have been replaced by a shop selling candles and giftware. Out in the grounds were the radio controlled boats costing 1 Cornish Penny (or the equivalent of 50 pence) for what seems like a very short time, and my boat was stuck on some wood right from the start. By the time I had freed it, my time was up and I had wasted 50 pence. There were a few contraptions to see ... Read the complete review

On our recent holiday to Cornwall one of the things we decided to do was visit on old Cornish tin mine. Cornwall as you might know is famous for many things (don’t worry, I’m not going to harp on about the pasties too much in this op!) one of which is its Tin Mines. Although we predominantly made a return visit to Cornwall because of the excellent trial biking facilities in Par, where we were, we also wanted to do a spot of sightseeing and learn a little about the county whilst we had the opportunity. Despite what you all might think we did not go from town to town trying to find the best Cornish pasties! Eighteenth ... Read the complete review
