Aira Force Waterfall
Aira Force is a showcase for the power and beauty of nature; it’s a place to escape the ordinary. For 300 years visitors have been drawn here, where rainwater runs from the fells into Aira Beck and thunders in one 65-foot leap over the falls. Yet, Aira Force is much more than an impressive waterfall. A network of trails weaves its way from Ullswater lakeshore to Gowbarrow summit, passing towering Himalayan firs, rare red squirrels, woodland glades, picnic spots and views out across Ullswater.
This is the perfect place for a family walk and picnic. From exploring the woods and splashing through streams to becoming a squirrel detective, there’s nothing quite like playing outdoors and at Aira Force we’ve got the lot.
Eat & shop: Our tea-room and kiosk serve light lunches, cakes, ice-cream and hot and cold drinks. We also have a small shop selling gifts, ice-cream and souvenirs. Tucking into a cream tea comes with a side order of virtue at Aira Force. By using our National Trust tearoom, kiosk and shop you can treat yourself and help us to protect the area at the same time.
