Sygun Copper Mine

Sygun Copper Mine is a family attraction situated in the heart of the snowdonia national park.

Winner of the Prince of Wales award for tourism, Sygun Copper Mine is one of the wonders of Wales - a remarkable and impressive example of how our precious industrial heritage can be reclaimed, restored and transformed into an outstanding attraction.

Our Self-guided audio visual tours allow you to explore the old workings on foot, in complete safety. There are winding tunnels and large, colourful chambers, magnificent stalactite and stalagmite formations and copper ore veins which contain traces of gold, silver and other precious metals.

The Audio presentation with special lighting and sound effects provide an enjoyable, interesting and realistic glimpse into the life of a Victorian Copper Miner.

Sygun offers a rare opportunity for those with a sense of adventure and curiosity, to discover for themselves the wonders it still shelters after being abandoned in 1903.

The incomparable countryside captured the imagination of movie makers, who turned the mountainside surrounding Sygun into a Chinese village in 1958 fir the filming of ‘The Inn of the Sixth Happiness’, starring the late Ingrid Bergman.
