Thanks for your support

Aira Force was originally designed for a very few people to enjoy but now over a quarter of a million people come to share in its special qualities every year. National Trust Rangers work hard to keep the unique experience that has been enjoyed for hundreds of years, but also ensure that the landscape doesn’t suffer.

The money we make from our tea room, kiosk and welcome building will enable us to continue caring for Aira Force and Ullswater for years to come.
