Geevor on the Tin Coast
Geevor Tin Mine, in Pendeen is the largest preserved mining site in the Country and is a short walk along the south West Coast Path from Levant. After closing as a working mine in 1990, Geevor is now open to the public telling stories of local miners who’ve worked underground in Cornwall more recently. Geevor is managed by a local community cooperative and isn’t owned by the National Trust, Geevor and Levant work together as partners on the Tin Coast.
An easy half mile walk along the coast from Levant Mine is Geevor Tin Mine, the largest preserved mining site in the country and the last surviving example of a complete 20th century Cornish tin mine.
Transformed into a heritage centre, the buildings at Geevor remain as they were left on the last shift in 1990. You can visit the Hard Rock Museum and its interactive exhibition of mining artefacts and stories, explore the many surface buildings and go underground in the mining tunnels of Wheal Mexico.
There is plenty of free parking at Geevor Tin Mine and if you have visited Levant and take your ticket with you to Geevor (or vice versa) you will receive a 20% discount on entry.
Geevor is open year round, Sunday – Friday (closed on Saturdays).
