The Silver Mountain Experience is only several miles away from a couple of our other Top 100 Attractions, Devils Bridge & Falls and The Vale of Rheidol Railway, which in my opinion could all be done on the same day. This award winning attraction really does have it all, as well as being ‘Value for Money' and the trip underground was both informative and educational, and the tour guide really did know his stuff which always makes a difference. It's now after my visit very apparent why people are just itching to film at Silver Mountain as did the BBC's ‘Countryfile' team a few years ago. With loads to see and explore there's a lot to occupy yourselves with, and what makes it extra special is that apart from the underground tour you are pretty much left to your own devices. Which as you will see the kids love? As if that wasn't enough the surrounding area at Llywernog is breathtakingly beautiful so once your done at the mine go and explore the surrounding area.
