"Miners Tramway" is a guided tour along a route
which dates back to 1846, through impressive caverns where mining
techniques are explained. To reach the "Deep Mine", visitors
travel on the steepest funicular railway in Great Britain. There,
10 son et lumière tableaux depict the social life of a slate
miner and his family. The commentary is available in several languages.
underground exploration is completed at the surface by a Victorian
village with a forge, a pub (the Miners Arms) where typical
miners food is served, Victorian shops, a prison, a bank where
visitors can withdraw Victorian coins to spend in the village shops,
printing workshops, a cobblers, houses, and exhibitions. There
is also a museum of industrial railway vehicles, and the restored
cottage of a famous blind musician who lived and died here.
