A step back in time
Such a lovely place to visit with your children or on your own
The place is so informative with displays of days gone by all over the place.
Staff walk around in costumes and are very friendly
Nice to watch them making homemade sweets or fancy a chippy like they used to make
A day trip is not enough so best to spend two days or more, lots to see and do
Venture down the Pit to give you an impression of what it was like for miners.
Lovely gift shop although they could be doing with bringing their prices down a bit.
The place is so good we keep coming back
