Perfect timing for the tide so over the rocks and onto first top. Barry did the outer cliff. Not rest of usnickywood106/02/2019
Coast path from Hillend then return over Rhossili Down.Arbie03/02/2019
Parked at church. Delightful walk in amazing conditions for January. Herd of Herdwick sheep at the top. Spectacular scenery which just got better and better on the way to Outer Head. With Jemma.Campbell Singer06/01/2019
Benign weather. Picked our way through the rocky wave cut platform then up onto very flat summit. Friendly sheep. With Dad.Jemma Singer06/01/2019
Great walk out to the tidal island highpoint.jenx25/10/2018

Parked at Rhossili and walked across causeway. Sadly missed opportunity to get to Outer Head - always another day !Ramblingpaul15/11/2017
Did with my daughter, wife, and son James who is at Swansea University, then went on to do Outer Head for my 5th time, and my children's 1st. Saw some seals on the crossing over the causeway, very close to the inner head ascent!pdantic25/10/2017
Crossed low neck to base of outer head as well, but unlike others on here I respected the seasonal ban. Plenty of seabirds still on the cliffs well into July.jnixon16/07/2017
Parked at Rhossoli National Trust car park, walked past BBC filming at Kitchen Corner, reached approach to Inner Head 5mins before low tide, crossed to blow hole on Northern rocks, but didn't check for seals. Fantastic crossing the Devil's bridge. Approach up to Outer Head not suitable for Steph, so could only imagine what the summit was like! Crossed back to South side of Inner Head using Causeway bedrock, easier under foot. Made it back before tide started creeping in...phew! Saw nesting Kestrel's and flying displays on sea cliffs from Kitchen corner. Fantastic afternoon out. With StephRotorslap28/06/2017
Glorious day with lots making the crossing, easy climb to top. Good views as far as Lundy, North Cornwall Coast and Pembrokeshire.PeterD02/10/2016
Easy stroll as far as causeway, then no obvious path through rocks/boulders to Inner Head. Took steepish path to summit and gentler grass path down. Lovely views of Outer Head. Discretion the better part of valour :)sooztops21/09/2016
Earlyish start from Mumbles for this one, arriving Rhossili just before low tide, visited the two in 1hr round trip. Notices state it's doable approx 2.5hrs either side of low tide. Drizzly start but sunny as Dad and I enjoyed cake and coffee in cafe afterwards.RHW13/08/2016
Gorgeous day with 2 daughters to the inner Worm. No way my children would have gone to the outer Worm so didn't try just enjoyed it. We saw a pair of Chough's.isabelle06/08/2016
From Rhossili, good path to Lookout Station, across causeway to inner head then to archway. Outer Head closed due to nesting- for another day. v dramatic coast, v warm & sunny.apricorum03/07/2016

Historically named 'Wurm' meaning 'dragon' by Viking invaders, the promontory, Worm's Head, is shaped like a giant sea-serpent and marks the most westerly tip of Gower. The island is joined to the mainland by a rocky causeway and features a large flat-topped 'Inner Head', towards a natural rock bridge called 'Devil's Bridge', a 'Low Neck' leading further out to the 'Outer Head'. The headland is one mile long and the highest point is approximately 150 feet. Drove down from Preston to arrive in the National Trust car park at midnight with a full moon. Slept a few hours but awakened at 5 am by the arrival of the first surfers. Then sent text to Colin to encourage an early start towards Worm's Head.Dugswell201/07/2015
With Doug. Splashed across the rocks before they'd completely cleared in order to have the Worm's Head to ourselves.Colin Crawford01/07/2015
