Poldark Mine & Heritage Complex is located in the Wendron Valley, once the scene of industrial activity, Poldark and its 18th century tin mine, described as one of the most atmospheric mine tours in Europe, is one of Cornwall´s most important heritage sites. Not just a Tin Mine but now a hive of activity with its pottery makers, wood turners, local craft workshops and candle makers to name but a few is by far Cornwall´s most popular heritage sites. Evening Ghost Tours of the candle lit Mine run on Tuesdays and Thursdays in July and August.
Poldark Mine & Heritage Complex is part of the following Editors' Picks:
"One for older children, the fabulously atmospheric Poldark tin mine is well known as a haunted hotspot and the ghost tours conducted here are huge fun. Paranormal investigators lead you through dripping caves by candlelight to tell you of strange goings on in the mine. Regular tours also explain tin mining from medieval times to the 1780s and are a fascinating insight into a mainstay of Cornish industry."
