About Hopewell Colliery, Coleford

The Hopewell Colliery in the forest of Dean acts as a museum depicting the past, present and future way of mining. With their guided underground tours, you can check out the mines, the way mining is done and learn about the safety measures the miners have to take while working underground. The tour will be conducted by an expert freeminer of the forest. The tour will take around 45 minutes and throughout the tour, you can strap on a miner’s helmet and follow the guide though the maze of tunnels that span miles and were dug out in 1820’s. The excellently engineered old furnace level will lead to the exit path that leads to the serene woodland. Return to the museum offering the mining tools and articles and the cafeteria offering coffee and snacks. You can also buy a souvenir from the gift shop.

Hopewell Colliery, Coleford Reviews

  • We went there for Christmas lunch it was great, one of us is gluten free not a problem! 6 of us for less than £100. No alcohol just good honest food and plenty of it.

  • A super mine tour with an excellent guide. We spent an hour an a half on the tour instead of the usual 45 minutes. Well worth the admission. A bit steep underfoot in places but there is a handrail. Also the headroom is low in places and you have to bend slightly.

  • Wonderful and fascinating experience. Our guide, Rick was a treasure trove of knowledge and brought the past to life. Get to experience complete darkness, so dark you cannot tell if your eyes are open or shut. A wonderful experience that anyone who visits the forest should try.

  • Basic food, not dog friendly but you can sit outside (unlike Weatherspoons) with your dog providing its not too cold/raining. Seats not comfy outside. Lovely setting in forest + clean loos. Restrictions on kids going down mine.

  • Fantastic guide, very clued up on the history and function of the mine and made the tour extremely worthwhile. A hidden gem, well worth the visit
