If you are interested in the Cornish mines and specifically the ruins, but not keen on going underground (Geevor) or walking on steep cliffs (Botallack / Wheal Coates / Rinsey) then Levant is the place for you. Its main attraction is that it has the world’s only Cornish beam engine still operated by steam on its original site. A wide-open site with several ruins to explore on a dramatic cliff-top setting which does not involve any scary drops. Though you might want to watch out for suspicious holes in the ground.
The mine is looked after by the National Trust so that you can interact with living mining history.
