There is no cafe at Levant, but we encourage you to enjoy other great eateries on the 'Tin Coast'. A short walk or drive will take you to nearby Geevor Café (not National Trust) which sells pasties, lunches and drinks. 

You can visit the wider Levant Mine site without booking a ticket. Please park at Geevor. 

 

Bringing a dog

We welcome assistance dogs only as part of pre booked tours.  However all dogs are welcome on the wider site. There are lots of mining remains in the landscape including mine shafts, it’s always a good idea to keep your dog on a lead in this area.
