Famous for its working waterwheel, a visit to Killhope is a unique and unforgettable experience for visitors of all ages. Our team will ensure you have a day to remember, you can explore the site and exhibition halls, accompany one of our guides on a mine tour and visit the refurbished shop and café to complete a grand day out.
Killhope is also home to Great Britain’s largest collection of spar boxes. These unique works of art, made of crystals and minerals found by the lead miners working underground, are also displayed at the site.
The museum is 450 meters (1500 feet) above sea level. We recommend that even in summer you come dressed for adventure and wear warm clothing and sensible footwear so that you can make the most of your visit. Wellingtons are essential for mine trips – if you have your own please bring them with you as we can’t guarantee the sizes we have available.
Normal admission prices apply for all events.
A responsible adult must accompany all children at each event.
