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.
Tearooms & Gift shop at entrance to walks.
Open from Easter to October
Buy tickets in advance and save 20%! Pre-bought tickets must be used during attendant hours (see calendar, above). Please contact us if you require further information.
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.
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. Both the Punch Bowl walk and the Nature Trail are unsuitable for pushchairs due to the number of steps.
The paths are not lit at night therefore please allow plenty of time to complete the walk before it gets dark.
Dogs must be kept on the lead. If your dog is large then it may struggle to enter through the turnstile with you. The steep steps are also difficult for dogs with short legs and you may end up carrying your pet.
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
