Had an excellent morning at the Royal Mint Tour. It was interesting, the tour guide was fun and very knowledgeable. There's a cafe if you want something to eat or drink. I could have spent all day at the gift shop! If you have children with you, there's engaging activities all the way around. To top off the tour, we struck our own coin 😁. Well worth a visit if you're in the area!
What an interesting visit. You learn loads about the production of currency and just how many countries in the world have their coins produced in the UK. All topped off by our own 50p piece finished in front of us. If you go consider the option of afternoon tea at the mint. Very good indeed.
