Unleash your inner child, choose from 10 of the best waterfalls in North Wales

Let's face it, who can resist the roar of a waterfall, the splash of cascading mist on your face, the beauty of a torrent of water tumbling from the cliffs above?  North Wales has 10 of the best waterfalls in the UK; just 5 of them below.  You've got to visit at least 1 during your stay.  Your choice starts here:-

Aber Falls; located in Snowdon's foothills and just off the A55 in the village of Abergwyngregyn. This is a pleasant stroll on well maintained paths through ancient lands once the home of  Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, the last native Prince of Wales  - he knew how to choose a spectacular spot. 

Dyserth Falls: Just park up in the pretty village of Dyserth and you don't have to walk more than a cock-stride to enjoy the glory of the water spilling over the cliff.  

Swallow Falls; The most well known & and surely on every visitors list.  Enjoy the roar or the cascading water but take care on the slippy rocks.

The Grey Mares Tail; Hidden away in the Gwydir woodland off the B5106 between Llanrwst and Trefriw, this dramatic waterfall(s) is worth the hike.  Pay attention for the marked car park  then a steep path leads up through the gorge.  Surely a must do??

Conwy Falls; This site of scientific interest is where the A5 and B4406 intersect.  The cafe was designed by William Clough Ellis, of Portmerion fame so worth a viewing and why not have a cuppa whilst you're there?  A fee is paid to access the dramatic gorge which takes you to the falls but at certain times of the year salmon can be seen to leap over the rocks to reach their spawning grounds.  Keep your eyes open for the unique flora and fauna; surely a delight to the senses.
