Private hire of our gardens and the mine Holman Chamber is easily arranged.There is ample parking and facilities. It may be advisable to arrange to hire a marquee and additional lavatories for larger groups, especially if wet weather is expected. We have contact with a local hire company who will provide all necessary requirements.
Please note that [out of respect for our neighbours] loud music, dancing and late nights are not possible here but may be possible at Wheal Dream which is close to the mine. Smoking is not allowed in the mine or anywhere inside or outside our gates or grounds.
First Class Catering for buffets and receptions is exclusively arranged by Wheal Dream which is a local family run professional restaurant and very experienced function company. In addition they have a range of self-contained pod holiday accommodation, a lounge bar, a fully licenced restaurant, a golf course, football golf and a three bed-roomed house for hire and are less than five minutes from the mine.
The underground Holman Chamber has space for 25 persons for smaller functions. We regret that as of June 1st 2019 we have decided to relinquish our licence for weddings and civil ceremonies in the mine. This was entirely due to the excessive renewal fees of over £1,000 charged by Cornwall Council which makes it non-viable for the museum. To charge so much for a single piece of paper is no longer acceptable. We regret any inconvenience.
