About Geevor Tin Mine

Follow in the footsteps of Cornish miners.

Geevor was the last mine to work the world famous St. Just Mining District finally closing in 1990. We are the key centre of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site.

Put your hard hat on and:

* Explore the mine.

* Discover how the rock was mined and brought up Victory Shaft from 600 metres below the ground.

* Get interactive in our Hard Rock Museum.

* Go underground into 18th century Wheal Mexico Mine.

* Relax and enjoy the fantastic coastal scenery. The South West Coast Path passes through Geevor.

In 2019 Geevor was again awarded the Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor making 5 years in a row that we have achieved this accolade and qualifying us for the Hall of Fame!

There is FREE all day car parking for our visitors.

We offer many activities on site throughout the year especially during school holidays that are FREE with site entry. See our website for details. Have a go at panning for 'gold' and gems and take home what you find for FREE!

There is FREE entry to the Mine Shop that stocks a huge variety of Cornish items, and the Count House Cafe that serves delicious home-cooked food, including our world-famous pasties!
