Christmas magic set to return to The Silver Mountain Experience

Santa and his elves will be waiting to welcome visitors to The Silver Mountain Experience next month.

A popular visitor attraction in Mid Wales has announced plans to create a magical Christmas for visitors next month.

The Silver Mountain Experience, located alongside the A44 between Aberystwyth and Llanidloes, will be opening the doors of its popular Elves’ Workshop and Santa’s Grotto from December 19-23.

Visitors will be able to see the elves busily prepare for the big day and meet Santa who will have an early present for children. This visit will be completely private to each ‘social bubble’ meaning that visitors can have their own personal tour.

The Christmas event must be pre-booked, and each timed slot is for a social bubble only. Find out more and book an online for the Elves’ Workshop and Santa’s Grotto at www.silvermountainexperience.co.uk/festive

Alongside this excitement, there is a whole host of other activities included within the ticket price. Visitors can enjoy Christmas cookie decorating, explore a special Reindeer Trail and enjoy the other surface attractions, including the Mining Museum, Miner’s Trail, Fossil Dig and more.

For those wanting to experience one of the guided tours, A Dragon’s Tale and A Miner’s Life will also be running. These additional tours are being offered at a reduced rate and can be booked on the day of the visit.

Since the summer, The Silver Mountain Experience has welcomed thousands of visitors in a safe and COVID-19 secure way. These safety measures are in place to ensure visitors have an enjoyable and safe visit.

The Silver Mountain Experience, Ultimate Xscape and The Miner’s Rest Café are all open from Tuesday to Sunday.

The  attraction is a place where history, myth and legend collide in an exciting and unique day out for all the family. Steeped in mining history, the centrepiece of The Silver Mountain Experience is a meticulously preserved silver-lead mine that dates to 1742.

As well as its informative and interesting historic side, the attraction is also home to a variety of other experiences.
