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.

  • Great menu, freindly staff, plenty of room inside and out, free parking. Can highly recommend .

  • Good food and service staff very friendly highly recommended 10 put 10

  • Colliery was shut in February, but the cafe was open, will have to go after Easter when I opens for underground tours.

  • 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.
