We parked in the carpark at the Visitor's Centre. Not as an extortionate fee as people have cited here, few quid for a few hours. The Upper Falls were about 5 mins from this carpark. They were stunning and the noise sounded like a freight train. There are a few picnic benches too in this area. There is a lovely... More

Absolutely beautiful and worth walking between the 3 viewing platforms to see all parts of the fall. Not easily accessible by all. Brilliant visitors centre and all amenities you would need near by. Great amount of parking on site

We went in February when the water was raging. The power of the falls is amazing. There's a great walk around the upper, middle and lower falls, including viewing platforms, and then footpaths carry on in different directions if you want a longer walk. The staff in the information centre were really helpful and we bought a map for £1.50... More

Even in February, following heavy rain, when the sun broke through the cloud, it was astonishingly beautiful. Wild water and trees bursting into life - wonderful! You can follow the course of the river from the high to the low falls. There is a sturdy path which avoids the slippery riverside walkway and it's an easy walk if you're not... More

Spectacular scenery the further you walk. Car park is £2.50 but looks secure. Can be muddy so go prepared with good walking boots. There's a lovely little tea room just over the bridge - ideal for light nts.

Visiting on a bright sunny day, Aysgarth Falls is a perfect destination for those looking for a stroll. There are three viewing platforms of the Falls at high, medium and low points but all within easy walking distance from the main car parks which are ample. For those being more adventurous, Bolton Castle is a couple of miles walk away... More

We had the best weather of our break to explore here. Word of advice - get there early to enjoy the views and get the best photos. Sturdy boots are recommended for the winter months as the paths are pretty muddy, but not so hard going that someone with limited mobility would be unable to manage. Not suitable for wheelchairs,...

Fantastic place to visit especially after the recent rainfall. Great walk from the upper falls to the lower falls. Lovely cafe within the national park centre with really friendly staff and great home baked cakes.

The falls were quite dramatic after all the rain we've had this week. Wear shoes with decent grip! There is currently a 'dark skies' event in the area, to encourage people to look up and make the most of the low light pollution there.

On route to Grassington and stopped for a walk around the area. There is a large "Pay & Display" car park located above the local church and the falls are a 10 min walk down the hill but take care this is a seriously steep hill for those recovering from the night before!! and not advised for anyone with walking...
