Swallow Falls | Waterfall in Wales

Updated: Jan 2

You've all seen the famous Instagram photo when people visit Swallow Falls, and it's no wonder why! You do have to pay a small entrance fee to enter (£2 per adult and £1 per child under the age of 14) but I'd say its definitely worth it especially after a heavy day of rainfall!

It's worth noting that apart from the waterfall, there isn't much else to do! Once you enter via the turnstiles, it takes around 2 minutes to walk around and view the waterfall. They do have a few benches which you can sit on and have a picnic but we wouldn't come all the way just to visit this!

Nice relaxing visit with not too many people around. I also like the fact that the venue was not crowded, so plenty of opportunities to get that perfect Instagram photo. – Google Review

Overall, Swallow Falls is a great location to visit but very restrictive in what you are permitted to see in our opinion. If you're a photographer you'll be disappointed to know that some of the prime locations are unreachable. You can still take some amazing photos from the viewpoint though!
