Aira Force, Penrith

4.7
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.

  • Outstanding views and a lovely walk. The car park is overly crowded (pretty understandable), and fairly expensive, it also doesn't offer a text to park or the use of a card, it does have free parking ...  more »
  • Nice walk and climb through the woodland which is well worth it when you see the waterfall, either from the top or the half way point. National Trust car parking at £5 though is a bit steep.  more »
