What a place at any time of the year. This is one of our go to places even though it's 70 miles from home. Good to go following heavy rain to see the sheer might of the river in all its glory. Dales National Park visitor centre on the north side of the river with cafe and toilets, all of which is accessible. The tracks to the falls are well maintained with picnic benches at the upper falls, although accessibility to the middle and lower falls is limited with stepped access only down to the river. Lower falls can be accessed right up to the river bank so a bit of care is needed around the rocks which can be very slippery bit fantastic to be able to get so close.
Lots of other places in the surrounding area to go and see if you're there for a few days or a couple of weeks.
Well worth a visit. Enjoy!

Just wow! So beautiful, it speaks for itself really, the natural beauty of the falls are magnificent. We visited the Mill Race Tearoom, which was on the bridge, the food was delicious and the staff friendly and helpful. A lovely clean and beautifully decorated cafe, selling local produce. Very reasonably priced too. The walks around the falls were picturesque and there was no litter to be seen. The visitor centre was not yet open for the season but there are information boards which are informative and helpful. I came here as a child and remember being bowled over then, 30 years later it is still an awe inspiring place to visit. Needless to say I won't be leaving it another 30 years, we will be back in the summer with a picnic!

NIce set of cascading waterfalls made famous as the place Robin took on Little John in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. You can do a pleasant walk from the village to the top of the set of falls and then down the river and back to the carpark. You can do it in less than an hour if you keep moving but we took much longer stopping to look at everyhting and playing near the river. Some nice picnic spots along the way and a half decent visitors centre with toilets. They often don themed walks for the kids at event times, Easter, Halloween etc

One of the nicest 'hidden' locations in the north, in my opinion. The upper falls are impressive but it's definitely worth the little extra walk to the mid and lower falls. It's quite easy to follow the signs and helpful maps to find the lower falls and on a busy day you'll probably be able to follow the steady stream of people doing the same.

Be sure of your footing as you can get incredibly close to the edge, which makes it one of the most appealing spots I've ever been to.

Dramatic waterfalls on the river Yore in the Yorkshire National Park. The Car Park is well placed for most people to walk from and access the falls, there is a lovely area for picnics and the Mill Tea Room is also a must for visitors. Visiting in February meant we had a good volume of water following down the falls and making them a more spectacular place to see, albeit a bit wet and muddy under foot so going with the right footwear for the prevailing weather is a must.

I love this place, it’s an easy walk for kids and great for dogs. Nothing too demanding on the path and it really is beautiful. I wouldn’t recommend it as the top attraction in the area, plus it’s busy even on off season, just drive a bit further and you can find some impressive walks away from the tourists. I’d still recommend this place though, it was my first visit to the area and I’ve been back many times since!

A beautiful place to visit.

The upper falls have a field with space for a picnic next to them. It's shallow enough in places to paddle with supervision. The parking area is set away from the falls and has toilets but it's a 10 min walk to get there over rough ground so could be difficult for those with limited mobility.(I managed the walk using my walking stick).

It is best to park up in the nominated parking area as soon as you take the road to the falls. Walk on down, passing the old mill on your left. Visit the tea rooms of course. Carry on down, over the road bridge, and on the left take the permissive path to get close to the falls. You will be right on the river and a great place for a picnic. Well worth a visit.

Small car park £5 for the day, tea room easy walks for all abilities, from the car park to the falls is a very steep road may need to bear that in mind for wheelchairs and mobility scooters, view points to see the falls and another walk through the woods to the castle both beautiful walks with some steep hills

Great day out, lovely cafe for a snack , just a short walk from car park to the upper falls , the Middle falls and lower falls can also be reached from the car park , awesome sight as the water cascades over the falls especially after the snow and rain we've just had , making it more spectacular.

5 by ray haswell Review source

Lovely waterfalls and well worth a visit. Nice walk to the 3 levels Upper, middle & lower falls. We saw them after the snow so they were spectacular with lots of water and amazing icicles. Would recommend the Old Mill Cafe down on the bridge for lunch, lovely homemade soup, scones and cakes.

5 by Michele Williams Review source

The walk is not as long as you'd think, be wary about paying for more than 2 hours parking especially if just doing the upper falls.
It was a cold, wet day when we went but the falls were fast and heavy so very impressive. I could imagine it being fantastic on a summer's day.

4 by Ben Appleton Review source

If you love the Dale's Aysgarth Falls is a must. Don't be tricked into parking in The Falls car park but go to the National Park carpark. Great for information and as a starting point for your own walks or to follow their trails. A great starting point whatever you choose.

5 by Julia Plaine Review source

Wonderful place to walk, enjoy the scenery, spend time with family and walk dogs. Waterfalls are beautiful and the footpaths are very well maintained and looked after which means they are accessible to most people (be aware that there are steps down to the second and third falls).

5 by Rachel Turner Review source

Nice gentle walk on good paths. Some steep bits down to the Riverside in places. Cam be extended if you want a longer walk to include Bolton Castle. Good parking which you can pay by cash or card. Gift shop and toilets at car park too. A nice day out. We'll worth a visit.

5 by Lee Tennant Review source

The river was in spate when we visited, and was pretty spectacular. Plenty carparking and paths good. Visitor centre/cafe/shop closed as it was Christmas Eve (not unexpected). We last visited 9.5 years ago when last in the area and I'll bet happy to visit again.

4 by Graham Campbell Review source

Really enjoyed the visit to the falls even though we went on Saturday it wasnt too busy but will i guess that wouldnt be the case in the summer. We did find that you cannot walk very far on the upper falls next to the river. Will have to have another visit here.

5 by Mike Barber Review source

Fantastic waterfalls to go and visit, the walk takes you both above and below the paying carpark. There are several waterfalls within a short stretch with a well laid path guiding you between them. This walk is suitable for all ages with benches along the way.

5 by Amy Gough Review source

What's there not to like ? Beautiful scenery and also peaceful. Got to see the waterfalls or what's left of them as hasn't been that much rain of recent definitely recommend if your on the way to somewhere to pop in and see them

5 by DanTheDrivingMan . Review source

Pleasant walk. A couple of cafés toilets.2 carparks . National park carpark is the cheapest and has toilets and cafe. This is the best carpark if you find walking up and down hills difficult. The other carpark is at the top of a very steep hill.

5 by Peter Warwick Review source

Nice place to visit. River walks and the falls viewing points are good, easy going. When you reach the Riverside, you can walk along thr rocks (it's fairly easy), and take the alternative route back to the centre. Worth a visit

5 by Philip Lumley Review source

Good day out though not a very long walk around the falls. (Could extend if you have a map and decide to go off route.) Toilet facilities and information at the main car park. Castle Bolton is a short drive (longer walk) away.

4 by Review source

Beautiful series of waterfalls linked by an easy path.
National Park car park at the Visitor Centre can get busy, however, there is a cheaper alternative at the old station which is just beyond the railway over bridge.

5 by Neil Simpson Review source

Beautiful landscape that you are able to get up close and personal with. Well posted and maintained pathways taking in all 3 sets of waterfalls. Very accessible. Good parking, toilets, picnic area. Viewing points.

5 by Jonathan Astley Review source

We spent 3 hours here on a glorious sunny morning. Wonderful way to spend a half day and get some lovely photographs. Then we went to the creamery at Hawes which is close by and highly recommended for cheese lovers.

5 by Kathryn Martinez Review source

Aysgarth falls and surrounding areas are good for walking there's a visitor centre on car park which is pay and display there ate a couple of places to get a bite to eat and also a great place to take photos

4 by Tony Nichols Review source

Beautiful place!! We had lunch at the mill tearoom, such tasty food lovely place. My husband had the ham, pork pie, cheese and salad, ham was so soft and tasty, good portions and reasonable cost too. Recommend!

5 by Julie Pearson Review source

Always a pleasure to visit. These falls are stunning in any weather. Make sure you take a camera and the walk by the river's edge is child friendly, so take the kids, they'll love it too!

5 by Gareth Review source

Only had a quick visit as part of a driving tour, but the falls was simply beautiful, memorizing and awe-inspiring. Wished I had more time to explore, but what I saw was still a thing of beauty.

5 by C. K. Review source

Great spot. Bring money for the car park. There is a nice cafe and visitors centre. Lovely walks around the falls themselves. Pub close by if you fancy a drink after a walkabout. Lots of dogs.
