Probably one of the more known waterfalls in the Lake District, however you'll be surprised at how many people still don't know about Aira Force. You can easily get around the walking route in under 2 hours, which offers nature trails and cool viewpoints.
Even though we wouldn't really consider Aira Force a hidden gem anymore due to the increase in popularity, it's still worth the visit if you're visiting the Lake District! There are many pathways which take you up and around the falls; offering great views of the water and providing some great photo opportunities!
Great place for a day out, the walking paths where you can better see the waterfalls are close but still the waterfalls is a sight to see. – Google Review
Overall, Aira Force is a beautiful place to visit and walk either alone, with your partner or fluffy companion, and even the kids. If you're a beginner when it comes to walking/hiking, then this little hike is the one for you.
