Visit one of Beddgelert’s top attractions on this
self-guided audio-visual tour, allowing you to explore the old workings on
foot. 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.
The audio presentation with special lightening and sound
effects provide an enjoyable, interesting and realistic glimpse into the life
of a Victorian copper miner. Sygun offers a rare opportunity for those with a
sense of adventure and curiosity, to discover for themselves the wonders it
still shelters after being abandoned in 1903.
