Top Ten Easter Attractions for Families by Kathryn Miller

"An old Welsh slate mine is the location of this fun-filled one-hour tour. Anyone called Arthur goes free. Enjoy mysterious but fun tales of King Arthur at this former Welsh slate mine. The one-hour long tours involve boarding a boat and setting sail on an underground river back in time to the era of King Arthur. It’s best suited to families with children aged 5-12, who usually make a day of it and stay to visit the crafts centre to watch designer-makers at work, or take part in drop-in activities such as candle-dipping and pottery painting. For older children (8+) and adults, Corris Mining Explorers is on the same site; tours of this original 18th century mine are led by a miner."

Exciting for children of all ages & adults. Interesting atmosphere with mystery & hidden magic. A few unusual shops to see and things to do while waiting to go into the Labyrinth. Love the smoking dragon incense burners & candle making. Well worth a visit, especially on a rainy day

Great find! We absolutely loved hearing the story of King Arthur and going underground to the tunnels. Shame we didn’t have more time to spend here for lunch etc

We took a family of 13 aged from 1 to 80+ and all coped with the trip. It was very well put together with groups of around 20 departing every 15 mins or so. The trip was well paved with few hills or slopes and included a boat trip to make it very different. The tour concentrated on a history of King Arthur rather than the mining experience, however the same company offer other trips through the miles of caves just next door. The children coped well with the darkness, lights and noise so I would recommend it to everyone, however under 4 or 5 are going to struggle to understand the stories.

We have just had a fabulous day out at the King Arthur labyrinth. There was so much to do and see. The trip underground on the boat trip and interactive story was brilliant. The caves and walkways were easy underfoot and we all enjoyed the tales of young king Arthur and his battles. The craft shops were well planned with activities to entertain the children, spent far more than planned, but the children came away with some lovely craft items, and some still to arrive in the post. A lively day out and worth the money.

A hidden gem. Old mine cave but has been turned into a wonderful underground experience. Amazing history. Kids loved the story that was brought to life

I have been coming here with my parents since I was little but this is my first time with my girlfriend. She had an amazing time, and learnt the story of King Arthur. Would recommend for anyone with or without children.

This place was amazing, I have never seen anything like this or been in a cave before, it was a Great experience and I would definitely recommend everyone goes! My boyfriend and his Dad made horrible jokes that we would get drenched going through the waterfall then it goes away I didn't want to get too wet. It was so interesting and the nice man looked very mysterious walking us in there, I loved the dragon at the end with all the smoke!

A great experience for the kids to venture in the caves, in a very safe environment. The experience was unique and the children (3 & 6) really enjoyed themselves. The walking are within the cave is even. The tour gives a flavour of the history, and the boat ride breaks up the walk. Best to book in advance.

Had spent the weekend climbing Snowdon and visiting the surrounding areas. Unfortunately the weather had turned against us so we wanted to find something to do. We found this in a local leaflet and it looked interesting. Glad we did as it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience (even for my 15yr old son!). The caves and caverns are stunning on their own but the clever use of light and displays gave an interesting insight into the legend of King Arthur. The tour lasted just over an hour and I can say that it was money well spent and would recommend this to families with kids young or older.


Review of King Arthur's Labyrinth

Posted on by Jo CCustomer visited Apr 2017

Really good and different tour. Starts off with an introductory video that sets the scene, then on with the hard hats and down into the mine / caverns. The tour takes about an hour and starts with a boat trip (the boat seats 20 so larger groups can go together). The guide was very knowledgable, happy to answer any questions (ask about how deep and how far the tunnels go!) Wear warm clothes, doesn't matter how hot it is outside its cold in there, and good walking boots that you don't mind possibly getting a bit muddy. Age limit from 5 and above I'd say, although younger children can go, if you have to carry them it does get a bit low at some points. All in all a great little adventure, well worth the money in my opinion. And if you're lucky you might get an RAF flyover when you come out! Staff excellent and informative

The caves were great to explore and the boat ride at the start and end add a nice unique touch. The craft centre was great too, recommend the gin!
