About Devil’s Bridge

If you wish to travel from Aberystwyth to Devil’s Bridge on the Vale of Rheidol Steam Railway, then the station is a 4 minute walk from the Waterfalls – turn left when you leave the station car park, and head directly to the entrance kiosk just past the Hafod Hotel. Please note, the train departs 1 hour after arrival, which will give you time to walk the Nature Trail, or take the short walk and have a cup of tea afterwards! Please note, the railway is a separate attraction and is not affiliated with Devil’s Bridge Falls.

Opposite the Rheidol Steam Railway station, you will find Y Caban – Watch the Chocolatires turn molten Belgian Chocolate into a range of handmade exquisite chocolates. www.sarahbunton.co.uk
