Although there are some fine waterfalls in the Lake District, North Pennines and North York Moors, in my mind there is no doubt that the Yorkshire Dales is the waterfall capital of England. The Dales contain not just the highest waterfall in England below ground (Gaping Gill), but also the highest waterfall above ground (Cautley Spout) and the highest single drop waterfall in the country (Hardraw Force).
The Yorkshire Dales are packed with iconic waterfalls such as Aysgarth Falls, Janet’s Foss, Thornton Force and the falls of Gordale Scar. These are just some of the most famous, there are many other superb waterfalls some of which are hardly known at all.
