Hi, The café is open every day all year round. During these holidays the museum is usually open on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, we'd recommend calling ahead. Unfortunately, this year, we don't have the volunteer mine guides available to run week-day mine tours. Of course, mine tours are available at weekends, and Bank Holiday Mondays as usual.
