Killhope The North of England Lead Mining Museum is a multi-award winning attraction and is situated 450 metres (1500 feet) above sea level in Upper Weardale within the stunning North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

With breath taking scenery, underground adventure, hands on activities, fascinating lead mining history, woodland walks and amazing flora and wildlife, there is so much to do and see for all the family.

On the site try your hand as a Washer Boy on the Washing Floor, and see what minerals you can find in the silt - maybe shiny pieces of galena (lead ore), quartz or fluorspar. Marvel at our iconic Armstrong Water Wheel and explore the Jigger House, Blacksmiths, Mine Agents office and Lodging shop where miners might have to stay especially during winter months! Get kitted up in wellingtons, hard hat and lamp to go on a memorable underground adventure into Park Level Mine with one of our knowledgeable guides and learn about the harsh working conditions of the miners. Unfortunately mine tours are unsuitable for children under 4 years and therefore we make no charge for their admission.

Meander around the paths on site and venture into the woods and Hazely Hush to enjoy different views of the site, Weardale landscape and ancient mining techniques as well as our wonderful flora and wildlife. You may even be lucky and see our Red Squirrels.

The Visitor Centre is all on ground level and includes our Exciting Exhibition introduced 2014 "Led Here by Lead" which gives an insight into the working and social lives of lead miners and their families in Victorian Upper Weardale. It explains the geology of the area and the minerals found. There is an Audio Visual of the story of Killhope and our magnificent and unique collection of Spar Boxes - a folk craft popular amongst the miners. Browse the gift shop and enjoy a cuppa and home cooked food in the cafe to complete a wonderful day out. Museum open daily between 1 April and 1 November 2015 11am - 5pm. Cafe open daily 10.30 - 5pm

Although parts of the site are rough underfoot, the site is partly accessible with ramps to the buildings and washing floor. The visitor centre and its facilities are all fully accessible. An electric mobility scooter is available for use but it is suggested that this is booked in advance of a planned visit. Car parking is free with Disabled Parking reserved spaces close to the visitor centre entrance.

Even in summer it is advisable to wear warm clothing and sensible footwear to make the most of your visit.

We offer discounts for visitors who arrive by public transport or bicycle. Group visits are welcome - please contact the museum to make arrangements

Dogs are welcome on site but need to be kept on a lead

Please consult our Website for 2015 programme of events and childrens workshops.

A fully priced ticket to the site is valid for 12 months from date of purchase.

We visited the Killhope Lead Mining Museum while being back in the area where my wife and I were born and brought up. I had previously investigated the ancestry of my family and established that they had been lead miners in Hunstanworth, so we set off to visit Hinstanworth but thought we would call in at Killhope on the way.... 更多

Killhope Mine is a gem of an attraction, set in Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We arrived in time for lunch in the café there, the food was freshly prepared and delicious, (we had the soup & sandwich combo) and couldn't fault it. We booked for a mine visit which lasted approx. 1hr 20mins, we were kitted out with hard... 更多

Enjoyed a lovely day out here. It is definitely not just for children to enjoy and learn, me and my partner spent a good few hours here walking and exploring. The staff were enthusiastic, polite and helpful which made all the difference to our day. We enjoyed walking around the museum and the mine tour was great too - take... 更多

Visited on a cold day in April but warm welcome by very helpful staff. Initial disappointment at missing a underground tour as we arrived 5 minutes too late due to misunderstanding on the phone was lost as there was so much to see before the next tour in 1 1/2 hrs. That was a great success and most interesting and... 更多

On a short holiday in the area we came across the museum by chance. It is well worth the visit and your ticket allows 'free' return visits for the following 12 months. Inside, the staff were very welcoming and explained everything on the site in detail. We booked in to go down the mine - we were given wellies, a... 更多

Do time your visit to include a trip down the mine. Worth looking around the well laid out museum first so children understand what the mine is all about. If you have easily scared children I wouldn't suggest they go down if they're under the age of 8 or 9. Our guide was extremely good with the children. It is... 更多

We went to Killhope Lead Mining Museum in early September - the weather was very poor but this Museum was perfect for a wet weather afternoon. The cafe served delicious home made soup, the museum was fascinating, especially the spar boxes, the like of which we had never seen before. The guide who led the tour down the mine was... 更多
