‪Called in today on spec following a recommendation which was well justified. Rich, a Freeminer of many years experience, took us underground. Very knowledgable, answered all questions and made for a very interesting and knowledgable tour.
TIP Book ahead on the internet - internet locally is iffy - but you can just turn up. Be aware it may get busy… Rich was expecting a school visit following our tour.‬

‪An excellent informative tour for all ages. Rich, the guide, is an experienced Freeminer so knows his stuff! Wear walking shoes or boots and a coat that you don't mind a bit of dirt on.‬

‪We stumbled upon this place at the last minute and as we hadn't booked online we luckily had cash to buy some tickets on spec. Tip: the mobile data around this area is patchy if not non existent. Rich was our guide and was awsome. Knowledgeable and personable he made the short tour very interesting and worthwhile. We had lunch in the cafe which was really great value. A great experience had. ‬

‪Visited the colliery in April 2022, what an experience, it was great, the guide was brilliant and answered all our questions, he was a mine of information (excuse the pun).
The tea room and staff were brilliant and the food was exceptional and a great choice. Prices were good too.
I would definitely recommend to my friends and family.‬

‪A brilliant experience. Our guide, a free-miner himself, provided wonderful information and a potted history of the mines. What dangerous and hard work it was back in the day. Well worth a visit.‬

‪An amazing visit and highly recommended.

Our guide Richard ably explained the history of the Free Miners of the Forest of Dean and showed the hardships of the conditions down the mine. There was loads of fascinating and thought provoking details, not least the experience of total darkness.

They also have a great Cafe‬

‪UNMISSABLE What a wonderful tour into the mine by Rich. Rich needed a helper, so my son Jackson stepped into the role as Rich’s second in command for the descent. He was wonderful with him Loads of questions asked by the group all expertly answered by our man Rich. One of the best things I have done with the family in recent years. A history lesson deep under 200ft of rock to find the 30 inch seam of black goal (coal).

A step back in time to the days of darkness and hard graft to earn a living.

Also, a wonderful cafe filled with memories of generations of miners to have a lovely cuppa, and I recommend the toasted sandwich’s.

Fantastic!‬

‪This is not a glossy Disneyfied attraction. It's a small, hand-dug coal mine.
Early season, we were the only two people on our tour. The guide was friendly and informative.
Kitted out with hard hat and lamp, we walked down into the mine, where it's dark and damp.
Our guide explained how the mine was developed and worked. The tour gave a clear view of what it would have be like to work there.
The explanation of the "free miners" and their rights to extract coal was fascinating.
Even today they are driving a mine to extract more coal in much the same way as in the past.
We were back on the surface after about 50 minutes.
There is a cafe on site, which looked fine, but we didn't try it.‬

‪This is an excellent, if understated, experience. Rich's guiding was excellent and his enthusiasm was infectious.

Truly informative for both young and old that gives the visitor a real and tangible sense of the free miner's life and inherent risk.

It is a MUST SEE experience when visiting the Forest of Dean.‬
