Beautiful

Have done this walk many times, never fails to take my breath away, views are stunning. Try the estuary walk by getting the ferry across to the Fairbourne side and follow the path .

Breathtaking views!
Jun 2021 • Couples
It's impossible to describe the views as you cross the bridge, stunning just doesn't do it justice. A wonderful experience and a must see if you're in the area. We walked round to Fairbourne and caught the ferry back to Barmouth. It's a flat walk. The only slight disappointment was the cafe was closed.

Good views to Cadair idris & up the Estuary
Jun 2021
You can walk across the bridge which gives good views. There is an honesty box with the current toll being £1. We walked to Arthog & up by the waterfalls before returning

Amazing wildlife
May 2021 • Couples
We thought we would do a short walk!! Which ended out to be 8 km
We started from promenade and walked out off Barmouth towards the bridge. But of a gradient but not too challenging . Crossed over to right side where the view is awesome. The harbour, quaint cottages/ houses , boats all you expect at seaside. The walk itself across the bridge is easy , nearly everyone you meet greeted us with a smile and hello😊
The walk across following a donation to help preserve and renovate the bridge was full of beautiful views and spectacular wildlife, Bees 🐝 bustling about their business and birds nesting. Of course their were seagulls keeping their eyes on things too. It is easily sign posted to either Fairbourne or to a quaint ferry . We took the route to Fairbourne caught the steam train back to the ferry in the estuary. Everyone who worked in these attractions were very helpful and definitely would recommend the trip / walk but allow plenty of time to fully enjoy the scene and take in the fresh sea air.

Good ride
Jun 2021
Flat path, bit dusty but easy cycling to the pub George III. Stunning scenery, lots of picnic places and toilets near the station.

An experience not to be missed
Jun 2021
The Barmouth Toll Bridge is shared by trains, pedestrians and cyclists and, whether you are walking or cycling, it is an experience not to be missed. The bridge, itself, is interesting enough but, on a clear, sunny day, the views of the Mawddach Estuary are fantastic.

Iconic bridge
May 2021 • Couples
This bridge is truly amazing, and must be a maintenance headache. I see major repair works are due to be carried out later this year. It is absolutely fabulous to watch the trains going over. A marvellous bridge on a very beautiful estuary. I will never tire of it.
