Geevor Tin Mine is just along the coast road in Pendeen (just 20 minutes from St Ives) where you can actually go down a mine. Why not visit this family friendly visitor attraction and discover the story of the Cornish tin and copper mining industry.
Geevor is set in stunning scenery on the Atlantic coast and was the last mine to work the famous St Just Mining District. Explore the mine buildings at your own pace and walk through the tunnels of 18th Wheal Mexico Mine made by men and boys who worked in the mine more than 200 years ago.
The stunning Cornish coastline around Pendeen was once at the heart of the Cornish tin and copper mining industry. Geevor Tin Mine gives you the opportunity to visit a real mine and learn what life was like for a Cornish miner.
