Kinder Downfall | Waterfall in Peak District, England

Updated: Jan 2

Kinder Downfall is an absolute stunning and imposing waterfall located in the Peak District. The sheer rock faces and cascading water make it one hell of a natural beauty. It's the largest waterfall in the Peak District, and the views at the top are truly breath-taking!

We recommend visiting Kinder Downfall after heavy rain as majority of the time you'll only see a trickle of water coming down. However that doesnt change the fact that it's still very impressive and the views you'll be rewarded with are amazing!

Could spend hours here listening to the rushing water and soaking up the sunshine, it's a must-visit for any hikers in the area. – Google Review

It's worth noting the route is slightly challenging and you'll need a few spells of energetic waves to get you through it as it's very steep terrain up the mountain. However it's definitely worth the trek as the landscape view is lovely as well as refreshing (say hi to the friendly sheep for us too!).
