About Dolaucothi Gold Mines

These unique gold mines are set amid wooded hillsides of the Cambrian mountains overlooking the beautiful Cothi Valley.

2,000 years ago, the powerful Romans left behind glimpses of their gold-mining methods. The harsh mining environment continued in the 19th and 20th centuries, ending in 1938.

Guided tours take you back to experience the conditions underground in the Roman workings (tour routes may vary throughout the season).
The 1930's Mine Yard contains buildings and mining machinery, dating from that time.

Have a go at gold panning and experience the frustrations of searching for real gold!

Please note, underground tours involve steps and steep slopes. Appropriate outer wear and stout, enclosed footwear is essential.
