GLG is and has been the hydroelectric power centre of Exmoor for decades. The museum has buckets of info about hydroelectricity stuffed in one room - then you walk through the gorge. Powered water jets are a fave with the children. The gorge is beautiful...More

Not Good value, museum was dirty in need of TLC. Many displays not working. Trail not suitable for those with mobility issues. One plus was lady at ticket office, polite and helpful.

Pleasant, no cards! Overpriced as its essentially a bunch of footpaths near the gorge which to be fair you can see similar elsewhere for free. Museum bit old and dated and unless you love history of Lynmouth pointless as its all in the memorial hall...More

The entrance fee is £6:00 for adults £3:00 The only negative points for me were, they only take cash here (no contactless payments or credit cards etc) and there is no cafe or souvenir shop. (Never mind though) Hence, only four stars ⭐️ There is...More

We made our way here not 100% sure what to expect. I would say to cross off your list go there but if you’re planning on doing this look for other cheaper alternatives

You could spend at least half a Day wandering round this site. It was a very hot summers day when we went so it was very welcome. Great scenery and a fascinating exhibition about the Lynmouth floods and Hydro electricity.

In a county with so many stunning walks and views, mostly for free, this is just another, and it costs £6 to go through it. On its own, it is indeed amazing. Lovely walks and sights, seating, picnic areas, a museum, and stunning views. But...More
