Carnglaze Caverns

Take a tour underground…

Carnglaze Caverns is a spectacular all-weather family tourist attraction near the village of St Neot, on the southern edge of Bodmin Moor in Cornwall,

Carnglaze is a former mine where slate was both quarried and mined underground in Cornwall.. Find out about the miners’ ingenuity and skills, and how slate helped the Industrial Revolution. Go on a self-guided underground tour to learn how the mine was worked, ending at the Underground Lake with its crystal clear blue/green water. Browse the comprehensive collection of minerals mined and quarried in the South West, after which you will descend a flight of 60 steps taking you about 150m into the hillside and 60m below ground.

Carnglaze Caverns is a constant 10°C underground, cool in Summer, warmer in Winter! A jumper and sensible footwear are recommended. As the Caverns are underground it makes for an ideal wet weather activity in Cornwall.

There’s more above ground! A magical woodland walk for all the family

Wander through the Terrace Garden along zigzag pathways to the Enchanted Dell. Follow the Woodland Walk through Quarry Wood (4 acres of bluebells in Spring!) to a panoramic view of St Neot village, before looping back down to the main site: a round walk of 25 minutes, or longer if you are counting the faeries! Picnic in the Walled Garden; browse the well-stocked Crystals and Crafts Shop; enjoy the tranquillity and listen to the birdsong! A great day out for all the family.
