Devils Bridge Falls is a world famous tourist attraction 12 miles from Aberystwyth. These unique waterfalls have attracted many thousands of visitors since the 18th century, including William Wordsworth who wrote about the "Torrent at the Devil's Bridge". Today, the Falls Nature Trail provides a unique opportunity to see this great natural feature in the Rheidol Gorge.
There are two walks to choose from:
1. NATURE TRAIL, WATERFALLS & 3 BRIDGES
This walk takes minimum of 45 minutes.
2. PUNCHBOWL & 3 BRIDGES
This walk is easier and only takes 10 minutes.
The Waterfalls and Punchbowl are open all year.
During the winter refreshments and food are available from the Hafod Hotel opposite the exit to the waterfalls walk.
Admission Charges and Opening Hours
2 x £1.00 coins per person.
1 x £1.00 coin per person.
When there is no attendant on duty, both walks are entered through the coin operated turnstile. £1.00 coins / change is available from the Hafod Hotel which is situated just across the bridge.
Groups are still welcome but they must make an advanced booking of at least 48 hours if they want free guide books and to enter through the side gates. Prices remain at £2.00 or £1.00 per person depending on which walk is taken.
When there is ice on the paths we recommend that you do not enter the walks. Fallen twigs and leaves can also create a hazard on the path and steps. It is essential that appropriate footwear is worn.
The paths are not lit at night therefore please allow plenty of time to complete the walk before it gets dark.
Please be aware that large dogs may have difficulty in entering through the turnstiles.
Due to the geology of the Rheidol Gorge, the walks are not suitable for the elderly, disabled visitors or pushchairs. Children must be accompanied by an adult. For more information, see the Walks page
