£2 entrance via a turnstile. Short walk doesn’t take a long time to see. Lots of stairs to view points so not disabled friendly.

£2 each to pass through turnstiles, many steep well maintained steps down to falls viewed from promontory - and up again. A marvellous sight to see the falls, recommended

Lovely long walk on a cold crispy January morning. Well worth the effort... although the guide map estimates it is 2 mile circa when in actual fact it is 6 miles circa!

You can park minutes away from The falls so yes you would be fine. It has a £2 entry fee as well 😌

Absolutely, there's no one to restrict you from that (though it might be a trick getting a dog through the pay turnstile without paying separately) - keep the dog on a leash, the stairs are rather tall, and can be slippery.
