‘Ullswater, as being, perhaps, upon the whole, the happiest combination of beauty and grandeur, which any of the Lakes affords’, wrote Wordsworth in A Guide through the District of the Lakes. Follow in his footsteps and see if you agree. 

Take the steamer from Glenridding to the legendary Aira Force waterfall and return along the lake shore. This walk is graded easy and is 3.7 miles (6km), which should take approximately 4 hours.  You are advised to wear appropriate footwear and bring a packed lunch.  Dogs are welcome.

Meet your Lake District National Park guide at Ullswater Information Centre, Glenridding for 9.40am
