Sygun Copper Mine is one of the wonders of Wales - a remarkable and impressive example of how our precious industrial heritage can be reclaimed, restored and transformed into an outstanding family attraction. The mine, a unique modern day reminder of 19th century methods of ore extraction and processing, is situated in the glorious Gwynant Valley - the heart of the stunning Snowdonia National Park. This is a wonderland of spectacular mountain scenery, trees, rivers and lakes dominated by Snowdon, the highest peak in the country of the legendary red dragon. The incomparable countryside captured the imagination of movie makers, who turned the mountainside surrounding Sygun into a Chinese village in 1958 for the filming of 'The Inn of the Sixth Happiness', starring the late Ingrid Bergman. Each stage of the mining process is clearly explained by audio presentations in English, complemented by interpretive displays with additional languages including Welsh, French, German, Dutch, Spanish and Russian - while special lighting and sound effects contribute in providing a realistic glimpse into the past.
