Geevor Tin Mine, which operated as a mining site until 1990 is also one of the most protected industrial heritage sites in the United Kingdom. Because of the key role it played in the mining industry of Cornwall, Geevor Tin Mine carries an international significance to its name.

Now, it is a museum and a heritage center which brings Cornwall’s mining history back to life. When you visit Geevor Tin Mine, you will be given a guided underground tour through the workings of the 18th and 19th century. A walk through the mill would give you the chance to see where the tin ore was processed to produce tin.

Educational and specialized groups can find a visit to Geevor very rewarding. Geevor sees to it that they can cater for school, college and university parties and meet the needs of each group with the site’s resources. Come to Geevor for an educational visit and leave the place brimming with newfound knowledge of Cornwall’s rich history in shipping, farming, mine-related industries, language, literature and arts.

Geevor Tin Mine is equipped with facilities to meet the needs of the visitors. You can bring your own food for a picnic in one of the grassy areas at Geevor but the best way is to sample the packed lunches the Count House café at Geevor provides if you have an advance booking. Your visit to Geevor will not only leave you with memories because a site shop sells memorabilia you can take home as a reminder. You can choose from a variety of Cornish made gifts and jewelry, mining memorabilia and mineral specimens, mining books, and other items. Geevor is open to guests every day of the year except Christmas. For more information you may contact Geevor Tin Mine at telephone number 01736 788662 or email
