Not a lot to see. Quite interesting little museum. Trail badly signposted and partly shut. OK if you like water jets. Scenery very nice. You can't see the main waterfall because of the trees.

This is well worth visiting whilst you are in Lynmouth. There is an interesting exhibition about the flood, and also a lot about the hydro project. The walk up the gorge is stunning, with well prepared trails and fabulous flora and fauna

A very pretty place to go and see. Some of the exhibits feel a little tired but there's enough to interest... A shame that the full gorge wasn't keen, although we thought we could have got slightly further than we did. I definitely think a...More

Wasn't a lot to see at the Gorge, the only downfall about the place was the admission fee which wasn't really needed. We didn't really spend too much time there as it was just merely a walk by the river which you do for free...More

A nice climb to the ravine/gorge but displays and activities are a little dated i feel. It doesn't really get kids involved and is in definite need of refreshing and modernising. Not really worth the entrance fee.

Do not waste your time going here. We explained to the lady in the kiosk that my mum was 95 and could she do the walk. She advised it it was mainly flat with few steps. Within a 100 yards and lots of steps it...More

Wouldn't bother for £6 per adult! Feel cheated...we've climbed to the top of the gorge many times when our kids were small and stood right at the top looking down onto the waterfall which was great. After many years not doing one of our favourites...More

There is no doubt that Glen Lyn Gorge is a pleasant place, with some fascinating sights, however on the day we arrived we were told that part of the park was closed as a new tunnel was being created and some of the path's were...More

Lovely riverside walk, very pretty scenery. Great to learn how hydraulic power is generated. £6 not bad price but was disappointed that some paths were closed which meant we couldn't access the whole route to the ravine. Still very enjoyable on what was a beautiful...More
