Dan yr Ogof Showcaves Waterfalls, Wales

If you like caves, Dan yr Ogof National Showcaves Center for Wales is the place to be. It’s a really cool visit with caves, waterfalls, and other fun things to observe. There are three named caves, and the Dan yr Ogof Cave has waterfalls inside the cave.

The caves are lit partially so the falls take on the lighting of the caves. It makes for both a beautiful view, but it can also be difficult to photograph the falls. I took some pictures with my Nikon DSLR camera and also some with my Pixel smartphone, which consistently takes good photographs. There isn’t really a whole lot more to say except enjoy the caves and waterfalls!

Directions:

  1. The caves are northeast of Swansea by about 20 miles.
  2. Essentially, you will stay on road A4067 for nearly all of the way. We didn’t stay in Swansea, but instead in Neath, so if you are starting somewhere else, plan accordingly.
  3. We did park somewhat distant from the entrance. It wasn’t a difficult walk to get to the entrance and I believe they had assistance for people that needed it.
  4. There is an entrance fee to get into the Showcaves and other attractions.

Accessibility: 8/10 (easy/moderate)
Height: 50′
Length of Hike: 0.5 miles round-trip
