The Emporium is a coffee shop made out of two converted Victorian Miners’ Cottages – you can have a great cappuccino, a toasted sandwich or buy some traditional sweets to keep you going on a day of adventures.
If you’ve been underground or flying over the mountains you’ll need something to eat or drink. You can pop in for fresh tea, coffee and delicious cakes in the Emporium. Or have a hot meal in our Caverns Café with options including soup and traditional Lobscows – a Welsh stew the miners would have eaten underground as well as freshly made sandwiches, Oink Oink sausage rolls and excellent pies!
Fun for Kids
If there’s any energy left after experiencing the amazing underground world then the young ones can clamber around our play area – situated near the new Victorian Emporium. For the creative amongst you how about painting your own slate coaster as a memento to take home.
