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.
