Just to find out they charge £3.75 per person to see a WATERFALL!!!! What a joke. Got back in the car and saw other things, how can you charge for nature? £7.50 for two people to see a waterfall....

The three bridges worth to be seeing. The waterfalls and the nature is beautiful. The route is not that easy to be made but it definitely worth it

It was good to re-tread the steps where characters of a favourite series of ours had stayed. Not for the unfit as those steps are a killer. Looking up at the bridge was wonderful. Although, we did question where a victim of the show landed...More

As I live in Aberystwyth i visit fairly regularly, but this week I had my parents from North Wales staying. Our trip to Devil's bridge was one of the highlights of their trip. A must visit place if you are around the Aberystwyth area.

It's lovely to know that you visit so often. It's very different after such a long spell with no rain. The rocks look amazing though.
