Attraction Information

Suitable for ages: Young Children (4-8), Older Children (9-12) and Teenagers (13-18)

Venue type: Indoor, Outdoor

The early water-powered tinplate works was the last of many industries pioneered here, so it's a fascinating visit for history lovers!

Today the waters of the River Dulais are used to make Aberdulais Tin Works and Waterfall self-sufficient in environmentally friendly energy. It has the largest electricity-generating waterwheel in Europe.

Lifts enable visitors to access the cinema and the upper levels for excellent views of the falls. Kids are nicely catered for as there is a children's quiz trail that will help keep them moving around the displays, though they'll happily give their full attention to the interactives hidden in the stables!

Tramway Bridge has charmingly been identified as one of the best places in the country play Pooh Sticks, so let the kids collect them as you're going along and have an epic tournament while you all have a rest!

It's worth noting that the Dulais is a flash flood river, so it rises and falls very swiftly. You shouldn't go near it in terrible weather, though that's probably obvious, but if you can arrive just before moderate rainfall it's an awesome sight to see the river literally swell and rise before your eyes! Wellies for that one, methinks!
