You have two main options to walk to Aira Force. Either use the NT car park near to the shore of Ullswater and walk upstream and then back down, or if you want a longer more challenging walk take the track opposite the Royal Hotel in Dockray, and go downstream. You can then return uphill for a hearty meal at the Royal Hotel.

The walks around the falls are arguably better than the falls itself. Worth donning stout shoes and spending a few hours strolling. There are interesting natural things to see pretty much wherever you look. Lots of people seemed to avoid the bottom of the falls as there are quite a few steps to negotiate. They are worth the effort. It had not rained for a while when we were there. I imagine that after a downpour the falls would be really drawdroppingly impressive.

By U.K. standards an impressive series of falls. Not suitable for anyone unsteady on their feet. No dedicated parking spaces for campers and motorhomes which is odd given there is room within the existing layout.

Absolutely stunning place. The walk is not overly strenuous but does require some exertion - some routes with several steps. You do have to watch your footing due to tree roots & stones though. You can join the walk from 1 of 3 car parks (2 on the A5091 and the main 1 on the A592 where the toilets & tearoom are). You can also catch an Ulswater steamer just across the road from the main car park.

We walked up the route via the stone steps which I found a little challenging due to mobility problems.It was raining so things were a little slippy - you really need to wear the correct footwear up there. It would be good if there were more signs as to which way to go. The view of the falls from the top is well worth the climb up the steps.
