Geevor Tin Mine is a 20th Century tin mine, located in an area that has been mined for thousands of years.
From the earliest times until the final closure in 1990, the price of tin played a major role in the changing fortunes of the mine. This greatly affected the people and the landscape of the surrounding area.
Geevor can currently only show our visitors a tiny fraction of what is beneath their feet. A huge network of tunnels and stopes runs from the top of the site beyond the road down to the sea. Originally the workings stretched far out below sea level.
