Aira Force Waterfall, Penrith

4.7
Take a walk in ancient woodlands and landscaped glades to Aira Force Waterfall, a 20 m (65 ft) waterfall in the Lake District. Hammer in a coin to make a wish at the Wish Tree. Extend your walk past the falls along the river, and glimpse smaller waterfalls and even some red squirrels. Wear good footwear, as the walk to the falls is steep and damp at times.

  • Stunning place! Great for families. Not suitable for prams, but we had our baby in a harness and it was perfect. The main car park fills up quickly in the holidays, but there's plenty of overflow parking further up.
  • This is a lovely walk. Quite testing if you go up beyond the main waterfall but worth the effort if you're able. The car park can be busy but there are toilets and a National Trust shop. A must visit if you're near Ullswater.
