Discover a brand-new state-of-the-art attraction celebrating North Yorkshire’s famous Land of Iron.

Standing on the site of the first ironstone mine in Cleveland, Land of Iron allows you to get up close and explore a rich and fascinating history. This hands-on journey takes you back 150 years to a time of industrial revolution when the area and its people supplied over a third of the world's Iron and Steel.

Book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment!

An all new-for-2023 exhibition

Journey back to a different time with the aid of photographs, mementos and objects that tell a fascinating story of the life and work of the miners and their families. The interactive exhibition is designed with every age in mind.

Step back in time with our fully guided tour

Our experienced guides will take you on a journey underground. Prepare to be plunged into total darkness as you listen to the story of our twelve-year-old “trappy” lad, then enter the tunnels to set off the blast. Don’t linger!

Please note that the drift tunnel is currently closed for essential maintenance works and the tour will be added to over the next two years with exciting new additions so repeat visits are a must!

Good for adults and families with wonderfully attentive volunteer staff.
