    We were gifted a Royal Mint tour & afternoon tea for Christmas and attended today. We had an absolutely fascinating tour - including speaking to current factory workers and getting to handle freshly minted money, getting to strike our own coins and learn so much we never had a clue about. We followed that up with the afternoon tea part which was fabulous and we were truly treated like Royal-Tea! If there was one thing I could improve it would be to be given more time on the tour to take in all the information that had been provided - there was quite a bit we didn't get to read or look at. Otherwise well worth it!

    What an experience! We went for a family experience including lunch and tap your own coin (2 included with the family of 4 experience) you can purchase more at the gift shop. The tour is not to long we did it with a 2 year old tow, so it's not bad. Very informative, no photography is allowed in the factory so pictures and video are only of the exhibition. Tour guide Ceris(hope that spelt right) very passionate knew everything about the coinage well versed in all the history. Patient with my boys few interruptions with questions and wanting talk about their own collections. Lovely choice of food, quality amazing. Kids menu is quite varied also. Recommend, we spent most of the morning here, large gift shop. Friendly staff.

    Absolutely amazing place to visit, well worth doing the tour, our guide was very informative and answered all questions with ease. We struck our own coin which was a fab experience to see this happening in front of us. Would certainly recommend.

    We went on the tour yesterday & the whole experience was excellent. The parking facilities were good, the shop and the cafe really good. We entered the building and went through the security checks, our guide Daniel was knowledgeable, funny and entertaining. We learnt loads about the process of making coinage and really enjoyed seeing inside the factory. The exhibition was really good with lots of information about the history of the mint, interactive sections for children. This is a great place to visit for any age and if you’re interested in coins (or even if you’re not), I would highly recommend a visit. You can’t take photos in the actual factory section, but outside of the processing area, you can take as many as you wish.
