Sygun Copper Mine

Sygun Copper Mine


The Sygun Copper Mine is a family attraction situated in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park and is open most of the year.

Come and see Snowdonia's famous stalactites and stalagmites and learn and discover with our audio-visual presentations and multi-lingual interpretation.

The Sygun Copper Mine is an excellent venue for groups and includes many fantastic activities such as 'Gold-panning' (seasonal) and is the venue for the 'British Adventure Racing Championship 2003' to be shown on Channel 4 and Sky TV.

The Sygun Copper Mines have been featured on the BBC2 program 'This Land' and is a member of the Attractions of Snowdonia and a member of Wales Underground.

We have a Colour Brochure about the Copper Mine available upon request.

Our self-guided audiovisual tours allow you to explore the old workings on foot, in complete safety. There are winding tunnels and large, colourful chambers, magnificent stalactite and stalagmite formations and copper ore veins which contain traces of gold, silver and other precious metals.

Sygun offers a rare opportunity for those with a sense of adventure and curiosity, from the young to the elderly, to discover for themselves the wonders it still shelters after being abandoned in 1903.
