Get behind a waterfall

Duration:2 hours or less
Activity:For kids - things to do before you're 11¾

Stand too close to the seriously impressive Aira Forceat Ullswater and you’ll get a really refreshing spray – but if you’ve got your swimming cossie, clamber in Scale Force near Buttermere village.

What you'll need:

Trainers or boots, a towel, raincoat (if you want to stay dry!), and a grown-up to help you (the rocks beside waterfalls are very slippy).
