A Welsh Coal Mining Experience and Hensol Castle Distillery


This unique package is comprised of tours at two very unique venues.

Just outside Cardiff you’ll find South Wales’ first full scale gin distillery, visitor experience, gin school and bottling plant, all distilling nicely in the cellars of the 17th century Hensol Castle.  The combination of Hensol Castle which is steeped in history together with the modern vibes and fun nature of small-batch craft gin creates a truly distinctive experience. 

Combine a tour at Hensol with the Black Gold Experience Underground Tour at A Welsh Coal Mining Experience for a truly original group package.  At A Welsh Coal Mining Experience, your group will be led underground by guides who worked the coal mines of the Rhondda Valleys. The tour is a fascinating testament to all the mining communities of the world famous Rhondda Valleys offering historic insights into the rich culture and character of the South Wales Valleys. The tour ends with a ride on DRAM! The virtual coal dram ride you would not want to miss.

Different rates are available for group bookings, with enhanced discounts available based on numbers attending.
