We visited on a beautiful day. The scenery is amazing. The walk to the bridge takes around 15-20 minutes, but we took our time to watch Dolphins in the bay. The sea was crystal clear . Seabirds nest in the cliffs. It is a beautiful...More

This is a lovely site which is spoiled by the rip off charge for crossing the rope bridge! £7 per person for crossing the approximately 30 foot bridge! It is a pleasant 15-20 minutes walk to the bridge but it is not worth the charge...More

Much better to walk along the clifftops I would suggest. Also, there were few people when we were there, so I imagine that the queues could get very long at peak season.

The rope bridge is more about the thrill than anything cultural. There are some nice views of the rugged coastline, but the adrenaline rush of crossing the bridge against a broadside wind is what you are paying for.

Went here in Easter Monday and was surprised by the crowd. Did not realise it was so popular, however the fine weather was certainly a draw. The whole place was very well run, staff were busy ensuring parking was no hassle for everyone, it did...More

The parking is free but you have to pay for an hour time slot to walk down and cross the bridge. Free to National Trust members.
