❰ View on Map Updated: 3 years ago



Swallow Falls can be seen by the roadside, so parking must be done with care, although there is ample parking along the A5 and at the Swallow Falls Hotel. It is observed far more dramatically if approached on foot along the northern bank, but the terrain there is rough.

Brief Description:

This waterfall on the Afon Llugwy has become a familiar natural celebrity over the past 100 years and has featured on film, postcard and canvas. While its principal viewpoints are situated on the south bank of the Llugwy with the convenience of ample parking along the A5 and within the hotel car park, it is observed far more dramatically if approached on foot along the northern bank.
