Big Pit is offering something different to the usual visitor experience this winter. As the underground closes every year in January to carry out essential maintenance, (with the exception of weekends), this means that Big Pit can offer something quite unique to visitors during this period.

The Lost Art of Mining  Tour and Demonstration will explain to visitors the type of work that goes on in keeping Big Pit open as one the UK’s leading tourist attractions. Join our  Engineer as he explains the actual maintenance that is happening and also demonstrates how smaller items of compressed air operated machinery was used underground.
