Lovely location and attraction, but outdated.

Lovely attraction, a must visit, but looks like they set up the attraction years ago and have done nothing since. All the exhibits are dusty, cobwebs and neglected. Still a must... read more

Lovely attraction, a must visit, but looks like they set up the attraction years ago and have done nothing since. All the exhibits are dusty, cobwebs and neglected. Still a must visit though bit of a steep walk. I really think that the path should have gone a bit higher up to show the inlet of the hydro but it... More

On the surface you wonder what you are paying for but this is a magnificent museum and delightful walk up the gorge. Lots to do for children too and a great way to discover more about the power of water. Brilliantly put together.

Informative and enjoyable trek up the gorge to the hydroelectric pipe. Well marked trails of varying difficulty. A very spectacular experience.

There are 2 parts to this attraction. The museum and then the gorge itself. The gorge is beautiful and the walk is really lovely with beautiful views and worth the entry fee. The museum, however, is looking very very sad -which is a real shame because it has an important message. I'm not a clean queen, but i was looking... More

We visited the Gorge on Sunday afternoon and found the whole setup absolutely brilliant. As others have said the walk to the top is not easy, especially after the rain, as it's very slippery and muddy but it's well worth the effort! A great place to visit anytime of the year! Very educational and interesting things to see and do... More

Start off by watching the water cascade over the rocks to the sea, then enter an amazingly informative, interesting and beautiful area. Really makes you realise the power of water. Although difficult in places due to the narrowness, the paths are relatively easy, depending on individual capability of course. But the walk to the top is well worth it, the... More

This amazing attraction has to be encountered head on and with a willing heart or you will miss the fun.I didn't realize how little i know about water and what it does each and every day of our lives,which we all take for granted.The hub of the attraction is the fountain of knowledge which starts the tour and where you...

Being a sedentary old codger, I was reluctant to clamber up through the woods to explore the Lyn Gorge. Nevertheless, on our last morning in Lynmouth I found myself traipsing up and down hill. And was it worth it! The place is teeming with wildlife. Robins sing all the way up the glen, every few yards a dipper dives under... More

We visited the Gorge 30/9 and were very impressed how informative and interesting it was for all ages , a different style of attraction reminding us of the power of water. A bit HILLY and maybe not for the faint hearted or anyone with walk difficulties ( but do not be put off ) it's worth the trek NOTE a... More

Cracking morning visit with the grandchildren, good price and on this day fairly quiet. Children enjoyed all aspects of the water, and so did we. Walk is pleasant though in places a little slippy.
