A very knowledgeable gentleman met us in the museum to start, explained the flood in 1952 and told us about the history of the gorge. Nice walk up, some work was being done at the top so we could not get up to the very...More

Informative, cheap, personal and beautiful surroundings made this a family favourite on our visit last week. Son was enthralled by the water cannons. I loved the moses pool and was especially enjoyable just sitting and relaxing. The walk is a little difficult with pushchairs or...More

Beautiful views! Unfortunately part of the trail was closed but still worth a visit. Really interesting information regarding hydro-electricity. Little museum with lots of educational bits, v interesting, but just needs to have cobwebs cleared and new clear signs put up. Worth the admission!

Not a lot to see. Quite interesting little museum. Trail badly signposted and partly shut. OK if you like water jets. Scenery very nice. You can't see the main waterfall because of the trees.
