Great for kids, very scarey for parents! Too far to walk for toilets and cafe, pleasant staff manning the souvenir shop, unhelpful staff in the cafe!

What a wonderful natural place in the Dales. Amazing rock formations, and a superb natural playground for children. When I visited there were children and young adults scrambling everywhere and thoroughly enjoying themselves. To the Geologist this might not seem ideal, but happiness was everywhere (except for the little boy telling his Mum off because he did not wish to... More

Brilliant for children, dogs and grown ups. Best to get there early during the weekend or school holidays as it can get surprisingly packed. It is an outdoor activity and scrambling over the rocks makes it more fun so go prepared for the weather and clambering around. The car park is £4.50 for the 4 hours or there abouts. Members...

It's quite an unusual place actually with rocks that look as though they have been carefully placed or balanced by giants. Seriously do not know how the rocks became to look like what they do, but it is quite an amazing sight. We spotted quite a lot of people sitting up on top the rocks enjoying the views. Most of...

Sadly my kids were a bit too old to believe that trolls used to live here, but it looks like they did! Brigham Rocks is my dog's absolute favourite place in Yorkshire--amazing rocks to climb and great vantage points. Just don't go in the middle of a sunny weekend, unless you want to share your rocks with half of Yorkshire.... More

My sons love climbing and exploring the rocks while we adults enjoy admiring the formations. Perfect for fun family outing, and the views across the Dales are stunning. On clear days, one can see all the way to York and Sutton Bank. Whether you're a budding geologist or not, you'll like Brimham Rocks.

Started to pour with rain so made a mad das back to car. Out of way but worth a look. Had a lovely drive to Pately Bridge at edge of dales. Not long enough, three days. Ripley Castle well worth a visit
