King Arthur's Labyrinth

Open annually Easter to end of October

Your clients will sail through an underground waterfall and into a magical place filled with dragons, giants and King Arthur. In the depths of the Labyrinth, your clients will leave the underground boat and be guided through vast caverns and winding tunnels where they will discover ancient Welsh legends whilst guided by a Dark Age Boatman. This underground storybook tells many of the earliest Welsh legends and includes dragons, colossal giants and fierce battles including King Arthur’s final battle The Battle of Camlan. Dramatic scenes, light and sound help to bring these tales alive.

Groups sail underground and into King Arthur's Labyrinth in groups of 18 people per boat (multiple boats can be booked for larger groups with boats sailing every 15 minutes). For large groups there are other experiences available on-site for those not underground in King Arthur's Labyrinth. Group discounts available for groups of 15+. FITs welcome too where discounts are offered. Complimentary pre-visits for organisers. 

Corris Mine Explorers

Open all year for Group bookings

Corris Mine Explorers offer authentic explorations of the old Braich Goch slate mine for groups of up to 40. Discounted group rates are available when bookings are made for 10 or more people. Discounted admissions offered to FIT organisers too, please get in touch. Complimentary pre-visits for organisers. Group visits can include multiple admissions to the various on-site attractions.

During the underground trips your clients will follow in the footsteps of Victorian slate miners with the best Mine Guides. They will experience the broad tunnels and cavernous chambers where the world’s finest slate was excavated by both hand and explosive, before being shipped around the world. Having barely been touched since the mine was abandoned in the 1970s, the countless awards and outstanding reviews explain how unmissable this fascinating experience is. Corris Mine Explorers has won a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for 8 consecutive years.

The Welsh Legends Maze

Open annually Easter to end of October

Your clients will discover the unexpected with mythical Welsh legends and intriguing characters hidden inside this leafy maze. Many of the characters come from the Mabinogion, the ancient Welsh book of legends which include the tragic tale of Blodeuwydd, the beautiful lady made from flowers and of King March who had a closely guarded secret: his ears were the same size and shape as mule’s ears.

As your clients navigate winding paths they’ll find these intriguing characters waiting to tell their stories. The maze plays host to a range of wildlife, with newts and frogs in the purpose-built pond, exotic dragonflies and butterflies warm up on the stones of the megalith and a range of birds from robins to rarer gold-crested wrens play amongst the trees, shrubs and plants. There is a choice of challenging quests too which your clients may enjoy, there’s something for all ages with prizes to be won. Groups can explore this outdoor maze packed full with Welsh myths and legends .
