The Copper Kingdom Centre is located on the quayside in the picturesque fishing harbour of Amlwch port, Anglesey, North Wales. This awarding winning centre tells the tale of the copper industry in the area.
Copper has been mined at Parys Mountain since the Bronze age. Following the “Great Discovery” 1768 the mine dominated the world price of copper. Over the next few years’ other industries grew up based on need to process, transport and exploit the copper found at the mountain.
The Copper Kingdom Centre is a family friendly location that can accommodate all ages.
The Centre is wheel chair accessible and has a lift that will allow access to the first floor where an abundance of information is available i.e cinema, interactive touch table, children’s play area, information boards, artefacts.
You’ll find that the workers (or Werin in Welsh) found life somewhat harder than the mine managers.
You will also have chance to visit our re-creation of an underground mine.
Take time to carry out some “brass” rubbings in our Children’s corner and if you feel daring enough why not dress up as a miner or copper lady and have a photo taken as a holiday reminder.
Make sure to visit the cinema and experience overhead video footage of the area the copper came from and see the mountain in a different light. The film may even make you want to make the short journey to experience the mountain itself:- Ask the staff for directions.
Finally, take some time to look around our well stocked shop, where a small trinket or souvenir can be purchased and in turn hopefully give you that simple reminder of your experience of the Copper Kingdom.
