BIG PIT

Big Pit is a real coal mine and one of Britain’s leading mining museums. With facilities to educate and entertain all ages, Big Pit offers an exciting and informative day out for all the family. This award-winning national museum that still retains many traits of its former role as a coal mine, stands high on the heather-clad moors of Blaenafon, the tunnels and buildings that once echoed to the sound of the miners now enjoy the sound of the footsteps and chatter of visitors from all over the world. Big Pit is a living, breathing reminder of the coal industry in Wales and the people and society it created.
