Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / County Durham / Middleton in Teesdale / Nature / High Force Waterfall
A majestic waterfall, High Force Waterfall cascades over the River Tees. An impressive sight, the falls drop for 21.5 m (71 ft). A gently-sloping gravel path, the falls are only a short walk from a bus stop, car park, and picnic area. For a longer walk (about 2 hours), begin your journey from the south of the river at Holwick. Stop to view the Low Force Falls, and follow the river until you reach the larger waterfall. After visiting the falls, enjoy a drink and meal at the pub located next to the car park. Be sure to bring your camera for stunning photographs.

We're not big walkers & even had a buggy on our trip to this spectacular English wonder so we can safely say that the access & ease of getting to it shouldn't put ANYONE off. Staying in Crook, I tappe... more »
It's £3 to park and £1.50 per adult to walk to the falls which is great value of you're then going to do another of the many walks you can from the carpark. Not so great if you're only interested in the falls which is a maximum 20 minute walk each way with a very slow toddler who keeps stopping to look at things. Fall is impressive and the walk way is very well looked after and tidy. Pleasant stop but not much more.
Love my waterfalls! Stunning place to visit so peaceful 😊
It's ok. You pay to park and pay to walk the short distance to see the waterfall. Pretty but I think my expectations were a bit too high
An impressive waterfall reached after a lovely walk along the river.
This is a beautiful place for a walk. Disabled access was very limited when I was last here, due to rockfall. Parking is cheap and there are facilities nearby and clearly marked trails for hikers.
