From a review on Trip Advisor;

"If you want a real insight into Cornish Mining then you must visit. There are so many sites in Cornwall who play on the mining heritage but at the King Edward Mine you will see and hear about the true mining past of Camborne and Redruth. The guides are very helpful and well informed. The site is full of history and has a real atmosphere. Most of the site is covered so would suit a rainy day but if its dry the views of the local area are stunning."
