Welcome to A Welsh Coal Mining Experience.
Book your Black Gold Underground Experience and join an award-winning tour.
Your guide, a former miner who worked in the Rhondda coal mines as a boy, will take you underground and back in time. Ride the simulated DRAM! back to the surface – hold on tight!
Free digital and interactive displays bring history to life. Learn how our miners, colliery owners and communities lived while Rhondda coal powered the world. Sit in the parlour of a rich coal mine owner or visit a traditional shop.
Explore the courtyard and original mining artefacts – drams of coal, the Anderson bomb shelter and the Old Forge where the blacksmith worked on the colliery horses.
With on-site Caffe Bracchi, Craft of Hearts craft shop and workshops and the Chocolate House workshops and sweet treats, it’s a great experience for everyone.
