I haven't seen a better waterfall in England. Well worth a couple of hours to visit - walking/clambering up the paths alongside the water to the spectacular falls themselves. What a torrent!! Only problem is its popularity - the main car park - pay and...More

If you want a family friendly walk then this is the place to go. As always National Trust is doing a great job in maintaining it. Safe and lovely walk to this great waterfall. I am sure I will go there again in summer.

If you're wanting a great day out in the Lakes, something that doesn't cost money, but stimulates your senses... have a walk around Aira Force, truly wonderful, nature at it's best!

You don’t need to book a tour to appreciate the walk from one of the car parks (£5 for a 2 hour stay) up to the waterfalls. The woodland area surrounding the river, and wildlife sighting opportunities are simply fabulous, even in the snow and...More
