View down the Mawddach Estuary,The Panorama Walk is something of a Barmouth classic and visitors have been enjoying the views since Victorian times. Such was its popularity in the early 1900's that the Panorama gardens boasted a tea-room and an admission charge.

Both have now long gone, and the lower slopes are slowly being reclaimed by the native woodlands. Push on to the top, and the walker is rewarded with stunning views of the estuary, Barmouth Bridge and Cadair Idris.

View of Fairbourne from the Panorama Walk at BarmouthThe Panorama gardens part of the walk is a short loop, and can be accessed from a nearby car-park which eliminates much of the climbing. Even children who "don't do walking" have enjoyed this one!

A couple of longer alternative walks are included for the more energetic walker.

Please visit the EVENTS page for a full list of what's on in Barmouth and around the Mawddach estuary throughout the year.
