Swallow Falls, Betws-y-Coed, Wales

“It is life, I think, to watch the water. A man can learn so many things.”

The Swallow Falls are located in the beautiful landscape of the Snowdonia National Park in the Welsh mountains. They are a couple of miles from Betws-y-Coed on the Afon (River) Llugwy.

It had been raining the past couple of days before visiting so the river was in full flow as you can see by the photos.

Swallow falls were given to the Betws-y-Coed council by one Lord Ancaster. It had made so much money for the council over the years that the area had one of the lowest council rates in the country before the Local Government reorganisation in 1974.

When you visit make sure you have the correct change for £1.50 (2014) as that is the only way in through the turnstiles, no bank cards accepted or anyone to accept money. There are a few steps to encounter so one needs to be reasonably mobile to climb up and down.

Is it worth a visit ? it sure is !
