This place is like a huge adventure playground but not just for kids! It's such a fascinating place with walkways meandering around weird and wonderful rock formations. It's like being in a different world and such a wonderful place to explore. The temptation to climb the rocks is just too much! but don't forget to take your camera to capture... More

I had never heard of this attraction until joining the National Trust and visiting nearby Fountains Abbey. The rocks are stunning but you need a decent day for a visit as there is not much shelter. You can climb the rocks at your leisure and there are some beautiful photo opportunities and stunning views. Car parking is ample and free... More

From the ground looking up, Brimham Rocks do not appear too high. However....... those of you who do not like to be far from ground level,looking down from the Rocks can be a dizzy experience Wonderful views of beautiful Yorkshire. Well worth the trip

For the price of a National Trust car park (free for members of course) you can have a lovely walk round this natural phenomenon and potentially grow and interest in geology!

An excellent place to spend some time with the family, climbing the rocks and playing hide and seek. The is a café on site for buying drinks and snacks. You have to pay for parking unless you are a National Trust member.

Gets busy especially at weekends. You have to pay and display if you are not National Trust member. Car parking is ok but get there early. Small shop and kiosk for food. Toilets ok too. There is a flat path as well as the rugged explorer routes through the rocks. Be warned there are some big falls if people are... More

We recently joined the National Trust and whilst visiting nearby Harrogate, we saw this attraction advertised in the NT handbook. A 20 minute drive took us to a delightful surprise...Brimstone Rocks. This sight is unique, and I have visited many places in the UK but none have the physical appearance as this. An exciting place for children to expend energy... More

Not having read about the site, I was surprised at the extent of it, lots of well kept pathways, and rough tracks to explore. The rocks are many and varied in size and shape. A lovely place for a walk. Very quiet on the cold mid-week grey day I was there, but judging by the size of the car park,... More
