Lake District Hotel in Grasmere - Bridge House Hotel - Aira Force near Ullswater Lake

For our You Tube video of Aira Force click here

Aira Force is a series of waterfalls near Ullswater Lake in England's Lake District. The Lake District does get regular rainfall - otherwise we wouldn't have the Lakes in the first place!! Some visitors don't like the rain. So, what do you do in the Lake District when it does pour? Well, you may want to go browsing the shops in Grasmere, Ambleside or Keswick. Understandably, people visit popular attractions like the Aquarium or the Zoo, however we would recommend something else entirely - go and visit some Lake District waterfalls like this one at Aira Force.

There is a car park run by the National Trust for easy access. The walk to Aira Force is easy for anyone of average fitness and ability, although not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs. Most people go up one side of the river and come back down the other side. Both sides of Aira Beck (river) have safe advantageous viewing points for a closer look, but visitors are advised to be careful because the slopes into the waterfall can be steep.

After significant rainfall the Lake District is awash with mountain waterfalls, filling up the pools and tumbling down to the Lakes. The noise of the rivers in spate is a thunderous roar and being close to such powerful natural forces is awe inspiring.

The last picture below is the classic Lake District view of Aira Force with the stone bridge high above and the raging gill below - not an easy photograph to take because of the water spray covering the camera lens.
