The Silver Mountain Experience near Aberystwyth is promising sack-loads of fun things to do in the run up to Christmas.

and 23.

The Silver Mountain Experience, located at Llywernog Silver-Lead Mine, Ponterwyd, will be open from 10am-4pm, with the last entry at 3pm.

The ever popular ‘A Dragon’s Tale’ and ‘A Miner’s Life’ tours will also be running alongside Santa’s Grotto and visitors will have access
