Activities are available to suit all needs and abilities.
Underground Sleepover Adventure
You are invited to #FindYourEpic at The Corris Mine attraction, on the Great Weekend of Adventure.
Visitors are being encouraged to spend a night underground in an abandoned slate mine in mid Wales. The Corris Mine attraction allows explorers to adventure back in time deep underground and discover the virtually untouched, abandoned workings of an old Welsh slate mine which operated for some 130 years. On The Great Weekend of Adventure, visitors can venture even further, with a sleepover in this virtual time capsule accompanied by one of Wales’ top mine explorers.

The Sleepover Adventure will kick off with an evening meal in the Slaters Arms, hot chocolate will be served at midnight in a large disused chamber, before the candles are snuffed out for the night. A final exploration will take place the following morning before guests emerge above ground for a full Welsh breakfast in the adjoining Y Crochan Café.
