High Force | Hidden Waterfall in England

Updated: Jan 2

High Force Waterfall is a spectacular place to check out and is well worth a visit. You can visit during a drought and it'll still be pretty impressive. It's worth noting that there is a charge for parking and another small charge for the short walk to the waterfall itself. However, save yourself some money and do the longer walk which is free (and a better viewpoint from the top too!).

Described by some as one of the best waterfalls they have ever seen in the UK, High Force Waterfall should be at the very top of your UK Waterfall Bucket List. The sound of the falls crashing is something else too.


High Force Waterfall can be accessed from a wide variety of paths, depending on how long you want to walk for. One of our favourite places to view the waterfall is from the Pennine Way path which can be accessed from further down the High Force.

Amazing natural beauty attraction which is well worth a visit, and make sure you take lots of pictures. The waterfall itself shows just how powerful the force of the water is when you see waterfalls on TV you don't appreciate them! - Google Review
