The Lost Art of Mining Tour and Demonstration

Big Pit is offering something different to the usual visitor experience this winter.

As the underground closes every year in January to carry out essential maintenance, (with the exception of weekends), this means that Big Pit can offer something quite unique to visitors during this period.

The Lost Art of Mining will explain to visitors the type of work that goes on in keeping Big Pit open as one the UK’s leading tourist attractions.

Join our Mechanical Engineer as he explains the actual maintenance that is happening on site and also demonstrates how smaller items of compressed air operated machinery was used underground.

Available on Tuesdays and Thursday throughout January. The tour and demonstration last an hour, cost £3 per person, places are limited in a number and must be booked in advance by calling: 029 2057 3650.
