This attraction is very easy to find and access, being located right on the A5, just North of Betws-y-Coed. There is free parking in a layby just on the road outside. Or if this is full then there is cheap parking across the road at the Swallow Falls Hotel.
There is not a lot to this attraction apart from stating the obvious - riverside views of beautiful waterfalls. Nevertheless it is well worth a visit, especially in fine weather shortly after a rainy spell when the falls can be seen at their best.
A few tips which you may find useful are: 1) Keep your hand cupped over any exposed camera lenses because otherwise the water spray may coat your lens and give you soft focus photos, 2) take time to sit down on one of the benches and chill out to the lovely sound of the rushing water - which is very therapeutic.
This would be a great spot to sit and read a newspaper and/or enjoy a picnic sandwich plus flask of tea while relaxing on one of said benches. Or you could enjoy some refreshments across the road at the Swallow Falls Hotel.
It is worth mentioning that there are two viewing points. The upper one is reached via a short walk from the ticket office across even ground. The lower one is reached by descending a lot of steps. So people with mobility problems might have to content themselves with the view from the upper viewing point.
