We saw the water spout and were intrigued enough to go to find out what it was about. Friendly and helpful guy on the ticket desk persuaded us that it was a worthwhile walk and we set off. It was an absolute delight - beautiful walk up along the gorge to a ravine with fast moving tumbling waters and some... More

Very interesting exhibition on the entry to the Gorge. The walk up to the waterfall is stunning well worth the walk in the rain.

Disappointed .. total waste of money. As for my rating of the place, I've had to put it down as a one, I wanted to leave it as nothing but sadly not allowed. Not suitable for people in wheelchairs or children in buggies. Nearest toilet facilities were in a car park down the road. so having paid ten pounds to... More

I thought the museum was quite interesting if maybe in need of some updating, it all looked a bit drab but very informative. The gorge itself was lovely.

Don't waste your time or money on this one! The admission charge of £5 is simply not worth it. You get to see the lifeboat, and a very seedy museum full of photographs and artefacts from the 1952 floods. You can then do a forest, walk up the gorge to see a rather unimpressive waterfall.

What a lovely peaceful place.Started at the visitor center which had some interesting info and old photographs about the flood that altered the course of the river and as you walk the gorge there are signs marking how high the flood reached.We saw only 2 other people as we walked the paths very steep in places but there were lovely...

A beautiful gorge with amazing water jet at the bottom and waterfall at the top. Beautiful forest walk. Quite steep and narrow in places, but lots of benches and places for a picnic. I really liked the access for those less mobile. Still quite steep but a relatively smooth path at least. Well worth the entrance fee.

We found this by chance when we visited Lynmouth. £10 for two adults to go round is very good considering the views. Beautiful to walk along the gorge. I wouldn't advise this attraction for young children as some of the paths are very close to the cliff. I would also advise that you take as little as possible on the... More
