The attraction is great but most times when we've visited we've found the staff unfriendly. This time, although it was barely 4 pm on a Sunday, it was locked with admission by coins only. Go prepared with £1.50 per person whether adult or child. We...More

This is definitely a must see when in North Wales. Gorgeous falls and so peaceful (well, minus the roaring of the water!)

Very nice place, not to be missed. £1.50 each, easy to manage the steps, even with my dodgy knee. Park at the pub opposite. .... also that pub does lovely food and the staff are most helpful. 😀😀

Swallow Falls is a must see attraction. The views are absolutely stunning. If you get a clear day you can see for miles.

£1.50 which you can pay via turnstile (right money only no change given) but manned entry at busier times.

Yes I went with my 5 month old but I wouldn't bother with the pram as there are quite a few steps. They would be best in a carrier, hope this helps. X
