Ogwen Falls snack bar can trace its history back to the early 1900's when it was precariously perched on rocks at the head of the waterfall from which it takes its name

Known throughout the world it has its place in mountaineering history in this part of Snowdonia and has been run by the same family since 1953

The snack bar moved to its current location twenty eight years ago to newer premises incorporating Snowdonia National Park warden office and public toilets. This was a brown site development previously being an old hawn stone quarry - this quarry produced writing slates used in schools in the last century and exported worldwide.

Ogwen Falls snack bar is open seven days per week for most of the year - opening only at weekends during the winter months.

The adjacent car parks offer pay and display parking for longer stay visitors whilst free parking is available for short stay.

A short walk from the car park is Cwm Idwal, with the legend of Prince Idwal. Cwm Idwal has been a designated National Nature Reserve since the 1950's. In the opposite direction we can look down the spectacular Nant Ffrancon - a classic U shaped valley carved out by glaciers in the Ice Age.

The area is served by the "Snowdonia Sherpa" bus service - whilst "lon-las" is a spur of the national cycling network.

Tryfan, Glyderau and Carneddau ranges are all accessible from Ogwen Falls and in most cases circular walks are possible or the "Sherpa" bus system can be used when planning your route.

Whether it be at the start of your day or after a strenuous day in the mountains Ogwen Falls can provide you with that all important refreshment - hot or cold
