About Aysgarth Falls

Aysgarth Falls was actually a series of three main waterfalls, which the signs referred to them as Upper, Middle, and Lower. The falls are quite spectacular after heavy rainfall as thousands of gallons of water cascade over the series of broad limestone steps, which are divided into three stages: Upper Force, Middle Force and Lower Force. There is a visitors' centre with an exhibition, information, items for sale, a café, toilets and a pay-and-display car park.
