Venue type: Outdoor

High Force Waterfall, England's largest waterfall, suddenly and spectacularly drops 70 feet into the plunge pool below!

The pretty woodland walk is approximately 1/3 of a mile, with several resting points along the way. It is a gently sloping gravel path. As you begin the descent down the gentle slope the well maintained path twists and turns giving a different view every few yards. The muffled rumble suddenly turns to a roar and the sight astounds you.

The waterfall is accessible via a well-maintained gravel path, which may pose difficulties for wheelchair users. Strong companions are advised.

There are approximately 26 steps down to the viewing area at the base of the falls; wheelchair users can view the falls from the top of the steps. There are also approximately 78 steps leading to the top of the waterfall, however there is no access onto the rocks at the top of the waterfall itself.

Designated disabled parking spaces are located closer to the woodland walk and to the gift shop and toilets.
