King Edward Mine tells story of our historic tin mine and Cornwall's mining past.
We are closed for the winter, but have our regular Science/Technology/Engineering/Maths (STEM) Club running through the spring 2019. We re-open in April for our Annual Open Day.
Explore the many buildings with their magnificent
working mining machinery. Over our long history, Cornish tin and copper ore from deep underground was brought above ground and processed in our Mill to produce tin concentrate.
See our beautifully restored equipment demonstrated by our knowledgeble guides.
Visit the the UNESCO Cornish Mining World Heritage landscape where we have two iconic Cornish engine houses. Whilst they are in ruins, we explain how they were part of our working mine.
The Chair of the Trustees, Dave Ager, has written about the our sucessful 2018.
Our tours are entirely undercover and ideal for a rainy day in Cornwall. We are recommended by the good dog guide as we welcome four-legged friends.
