Notice: We are making some improvements to the main Aira Force car park this winter. The car park, tea room and toilets will be closed from Nov 4. Aira Force is still open to the public, please use the alternative car parks on Park Brow (A5091).
A tranquil haven of towering peaks, serene waters and undulating hills
Ullswater valley is truly breathtaking, with its beautiful lake nestled amongst towering fells. The epic scenery and relative underdevelopment compared to other areas of the Lake District gives Ullswater a secluded and tranquil feel.
Aira Force, a tumbling waterfall drops an impressive 65ft and can be reached by an enchanting stroll through ancient woodland and landscaped glades. The perfect place for a family walk and picnic.
There's plenty to do, walkers are spoiled for choice with relaxed lakeside strolls and challenging ascents to lofty mountain summits offering glorious views. Watersports enthusiasts will not be disappointed either, there's plenty of opportunity for fun and adventure on the water including canoeing, sailing, fishing and even swimming for the more intrepid explorers among you.
If you’re coming to visit Aira Force soon you may notice some changes taking place as we work to make some improvements.
We’ve started work on the main car park and putting in new paths as part of our improvement plan which we hope to have completed by spring next year.
