THINGS TO DO

THE SILVER MOUNTAIN EXPERIENCE

The Silver Mountain Experience is a place where history, myth and legend collide in a fantastic day out for the whole family.

Set against the dramatic Cambrian Mountains, The Silver Mountain Experience is not your usual day out. Experience ‘A Miners Life’, a guided tour, which takes visitors on a fascinating journey through the oldest part of the uniquely preserved silver-lead mine. Delve deep into Welsh myth and legend in our theatrical shows such as A Dragons Tale and the mysterious Black Chasm (not for the very young or faint-hearted). Whilst venturing, make sure you take the ‘time’ to visit our new attraction Time Lab, which features an interactive show for all the family, delving deep into the freaky facts and twisted tales linked to this unique silver mine. As well as our fantastic theatrics, you won’t want to miss what else we have on offer. Let your imagination run wild in Woo Hoo Woods, go gem panning, den building, dig for fossils and much more. So what are you waiting for? Come and explore!

Set within The Silver Mountain Experience, Ultimate Xscape offers a 20% discount on tickets to The Silver Mountain Experience upon making a booking for one or both of our Escape Rooms. You will receive a discount code on your confirmation email to use when booking tickets to The Silver Mountain Experience on their website, or you can show your booking confirmation on the day of your visit.

Devils Bridge Falls is a world famous tourist attraction 12 miles from Aberystwyth. These unique waterfalls have attracted many thousands of visitors since the 18th century, including William Wordsworth who wrote about the “Torrent at the Devil’s Bridge”. Today, the Falls Nature Trail provides a unique opportunity to see this great natural feature in the Rheidol Gorge. There are two walks that you can choose from, which takes in the beautiful nature and waterfalls of the surrounding areas. The Nature Trail, Waterfalls and 3 Bridges walk takes a minimum of 45 minutes, with 675 steep and uneven natural stones steps, so bring your walking boots. The second walk you can choose is the Punchbowl and 3 bridges, which takes 10 minutes. There are still 300 slate steps involved, so wear appropriate footwear.

A blast of the whistle and the hiss of steam and you’re away! Sit back, relax and let us take you on a nostalgic journey through some of Wales’ most spectacular scenery. Travelling on the Vale of Rheidol Railway is the finest way to explore the stunning Rheidol Valley. Opened in 1902, the railway has been delighting passengers young and old for over a century. See the countryside change as you travel through wide open fields and meadows, woodland and rugged mountain scenery, the line twisting and turning as it clings to the hillside. Alight at one of our recently restored intermediate stations and explore the many walks the valley has to offer. Listen to the sound of a powerful narrow gauge steam locomotive working hard to climb 700ft (200m) in the 11¾ miles from Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge. Click the button for more information.
