Visited Swallow Falls, it's definitely worth a visit, however don't forget to take pound coins with you as it's £2.00 each to get through turn stile.

Beautiful falls, however it is £2.00 to park and £2.00 each through an unmanned turnstile, and it is railed off so as there is limited walking space. We had seen everything in 15 mins.

Very beautiful but bit pricey as very small area to see and photographers being inconsiderate. But very nice spot to relax

As a Photographer this is one of my favourite natural spots in North Wales it always impresses even when the water is low.

Short walk from Betws-y-Coed or there is a small car park. Nice waterfall but if you were taking a large group the entrance fee would soon add up.

Had a great day of photography at the falls with some great results.The entrance fee was minimal really for the views you get it was just nice to chill and listen to the water.

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.

We don't have a dog so am not certain, although we did se people with dogs on our walk. However, if dogs are permitted it would be dangerous to let them off the lead as they could fall into the fast flowing river
