Notice: As of the 1 July we are in our 'High' season so our opening hours have extended to 10am to 6pm until 31 August. We've made a lot of changes at Dolaucothi Goldmines this year so we hope you'll come and visit us soon.
Gold mines in use from Roman times to the 20th century
These unique gold mines are set amid wooded hillsides overlooking the beautiful Cothi Valley.
2,000 years ago, the powerful Romans left behind a glimpse of gold-mining methods. The harsh mining environment continued in the 19th and 20th centuries, ending in 1938.
Guided tours take you back to experience the conditions of the Roman, Victorian and 1930s underground workings.
See and hear the 1930s mine and mine machinery. Have a go at gold panning and take the opportunity to experience the frustrations of searching for real gold.
Please note, underground tours involve steep slopes, stout footwear is essential.
We're a popular choice for schools and large groups looking for a unique experience.
