Free walk around a copper harbour. Smell the history, take in the breeze, taste the sea

Called in at this attraction and visited the café at the Sea Faring part of this working quay. Ordered coffee and toasties expecting a café type snack. We had Brie and Bacon/Cheese and ham toasties with dressed salad, coleslaw AND tortilla chips. Service was brilliantly welcoming and the place a MUST for all.

We were given so much fascinating information by the lady in reception. In 1768 more copper was produced here than anywhere else in the world. The population increased from 500 to 5,000 in just one month. Lord Nelson used this copper to coat the hull of his warship. And Doctor Who was filmed here! Outside the museum you will note... More

Planning to go to Parys Mountain but read that we should visit copper kingdom first. The staff was really friendly and great. However, the museum was quite small though informative. We went to Parys Mountain afterwards and found that really the copper kingdom does not add that much to the visit as there are information on the trail. We also... More

A short walk with medium task rate, this is a beautiful old mine, mostly hand dug with pickaxes so I am told, various trails to follow, a high ground or a low path its optional, the views from the top of the copper mines are quite breath taking as you can see most of the island on a clear day....

Had an absolutely awsome time walking around the old copper mines, we live not far away and was easy to find. Went into Amlwch afterwards, Found the museum in Amlwch a little on the pricy side, £14.50 for 2 adults and 1 children.

Go here first! The visitor centre makes sense of the topography and the historical development of a creek into a "major" port. The cliff top walks and historical buildings add colour and context to the major experience -the free walk, a car drive away, to Parys mountain and the former copper ore mine workings. Be amazed by the scale of... More

This is really three places to visit. If you if find yourself on Parys Mountain looking at the wonders of the open mine, the sheer vast canyon, the stunning colours then you must travel a couple of miles on to Amlwch Port and visit the Copper Kingdom Centre, where you will find out all about the mining of copper and...

We visited the museum after going to the awesome Parys mountain as we were keen to learn more about what we had seen. We found it worthwhile to buy joint tickets with the adjacent small maritime museum, which houses a cafe, and covers Amlwch's maritime past. Admission to the Copper Kingdom includes audio guides and everything is well laid out... More
