|Geevor Tin Mine|
Geevor was the
last working tin mine in West Penwith closing in 1990. Situated in
a spectacular setting on cliffs above the Atlantic Ocean, the workings
eventually stretched far out under the sea. Geevor is now the largest
mining history site in the UK where visitors can follow the story
of the mining and processing of tin.
The underground tour with an expert guide will take you into the fascinating, long abandoned 18th century Wheal Mexico adit mine, which was rediscovered in 1995.
The café offers delicious home cooked food as well as one of the best views in Cornwall. In the mine shop visitors may purchase tin and pewter jewellery and gifts, mineral specimens, books on mining history and the local area and many locally produced goods.
