Amazing stone bridge - 2000 years old! Paddled in the water in my special shoes 😎 spent a relaxing hour or so enjoying the view. If you like to visit ancient monuments - visit this one! 👌🏼

A great place to visit with children, dogs and walking. On the day we visited it was cool until afternoon, many people were picnicking and children and dogs were playing in the water. We walked through the woods by the side of the river and...More

A brilliant 6 hours spent here, just clambering over rocks alongside a tranquil river. The circular walk was pretty and was very popular for families with children and dog owners. It just goes to show you don't need to spend money to entertain the kids...More

We walked here from Withypool- which was a lovely walk. Definitely worth a visit- busy in August but plenty of space. Amazing to think how old the Steps are.

We visited for the afternoon and it was splendid. Lovely natural scenery and the river was great for paddling in. Parking is not so great but worth the walk - take a picnic and explore the woods

This is in the middle of nowhere. Try not to breakdown around here, as you can not get a mobile phone signal, and there is no WiFi. The car parking fee, is £3 for however long you want to stay. You will need to walk...More

Took the circular walk around the fantastic Tarr Steps before finishing with a pink of local ale in the Tarr Farm Inn. Comfortable 3 mile ish walk with stunning views. Car park is plenty big enough and has toilets on site.

We set the SatNav for the scenic route to Tarr Steps on Sunday 15th July - it took us just over an hour along some pretty country roads and lanes. We parked in the car park and paid the £4 for all day parking and...More

You may be able to get to the car park but this is accessed by means of a narrow country lane with limited passing spaces. You may be better parking elsewhere and then walking to it. Ordnance Survey map advisable not stanav.
