Henrhyd Falls | Waterfall in Wales

Updated: Jan 2

Henrhyd Falls is the tallest waterfall in South Wales, dropping 27 meters. But this isn't what it's famous for; rather, it's for serving as The Dark Knight Rises' Batcave entrance in the Batman films.

It's true what they say; Batman's Cave is the perfect place to enjoy nature. The paths at Henrhyd Falls are beautiful to walk along whilst breathing in that fresh Welsh air listening to the gushing sound of the waterfall. In our opinion, it's one of the best waterfalls in the whole of the UK that you can walk behind!

Gorgeous waterfall, the walk down was quite easy, just a little steep so not suitable for all. We were able to walk behind the waterfall which was great, and quite easy to do. Would definitely recommend you visit if you're in the area and looking for a good walk with a view. – Google Review

The national trust, who own the waterfall, improved visitor access by adding new steps and a pathway that allows you to walk behind the waterfall after the waterfall made an appearance in the 2012 movie. It's a lot of fun to walk behind the waterfall, especially when there's a strong current, but it's very slippery, so use extreme caution.
