The River Tees begins it's journey at the top of Cross Fell. It makes it's way through Teesdale's stunning scenery of moorland, woods, hills and villages punctuated by the spectacular High Force and the cascades of Low Force












High Force, in Upper Teesdale is the highest waterfall in England and is well worth a visit. The River Tees plunges dramatically over the Whin Sill to create a mighty spectacle and can be seen from the Pennine Way which passes close by.

Surrounded by stunning Teesdale landscape and woodland, Bowlees Visitor Centre is set in a tranquil spot and contains a mass of interesting information about the history, geology, farming culture and wildlife of Teesdale.  Admission to the centre is free and there is ample parking in the donate and display car park, together with an electric car charging point.

At the centre there is a wealth of leaflets detailing local walking and cycling routes, including starting points for trails to Low Force and  High Force waterfall. 

Explore the area around the centre and take a walk up to the magical Gibson's Cave waterfall, children can enjoy an activity trail and during the school holidays the education team at Bowlees offer an exciting programme of outdoor and wildlife inspired activities, including den building, outdoor cookery and harvest events.
