Falling Foss | Hidden Waterfall in England

Updated: Jan 2

If you're in the area we would definitely recommend checking out the Falling Foss Waterfall. If you want to climb down to the waterfall beware there is no recognised path, so you'll need to do a bit of scrambling (especially if you want a quick paddle!).

Falling Foss Waterfall is a must-visit if you're ever around Whitby. It's a gorgeous location which features a circular walk for those wishing to explore the woods as well as the waterfall. However as the walk is quite tricky, it isn't suitable for those with mobility issues or those with pushchairs.

The climb down to waterfall was very steep but there is a gentler route via the hermitage. Nice for paddling and/or quite shallow/limited swimming – Google Review

We would absolutely recommend visiting one of Yorkshire's finest waterfalls, and whilst you're there why not check out the tea garden right next to it? You can enjoy a bite to eat whilst listing to the trickling of the waterfall!


Things to know before visiting Falling Foss Waterfall

  • Falling Foss Waterfall is dog-friendly.

  • Unfortunately it is not pram-friendly for those visiting with little ones as there are a lot of hills to walk up.
