About Geevor

Geevor, covering an area of 67 acres, is dramatically sited on Cornwall’s Atlantic coast.  It is the largest mining heritage site in the UK and the only place where you can see how tin was mined and processed.

Explore the museum and the huge range of mine buildings complete with original machinery at your own pace.  The highlight of the visit is an underground tour into a real 18th century mine with a friendly expert guide.

Geevor is an important part of the World Heritage Site area for Cornish mining recognised by UNESCO in 2006.

Here Cornwall’s mining history comes to life.
