Buried deep under the mountains of Snowdonia lies an extraordinary story: it's a rock revolution that shaped the look and feel of the world as we know it. A way of life which built communities and defined generations of families in North Wales.

Experienced from the point of view of the mine workers, the tour uses cutting-edge enhanced reality technology to tell the story of their blood and guts, their determination and resilience, their risk and endeavour.

It also tells us a great deal about how our mining forefathers lived, the importance to them of family, friendship and community, and how their lives have shaped our own - and still do. Don't forget some waterproof and warm clothing as it is colder underground.
