Aira Force, Penrith

4.7
#1 of 46 in Things to do in Penrith
Take a walk in ancient woodlands and landscaped glades to Aira Force, 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. Arrange to visit Aira Force and other attractions in Penrith using our Penrith family vacation planner.
