Completely blown away by Brimham Rocks, can't believe I'd not heard of it before. Each photo on the National Trust Website looks good by itself, but cannot do justice to the shear scale of the place. Numerous massive rock outcrops, boulders upon boulders, and children were swarming all over with no barriers nor signs to tell them to be careful.... More

We visited brimham rocks for a family outing while on holiday in Yorkshire. It was a highlight of our holiday. Our children 10 and 12 loved climing the rocks! We even went back an other day with a picnic. There is a nice shop and information centre. A great day out for young and old.

We visited the rocks at about 4pm on a chilly, slightly overcast day - turned out to be a fantastic time to go as it was very quiet and we were able to explore and take pictures in peace! The rock formations are really strange and interesting, I loved it now as an adult but would have adored it as... More

I can here with family. Tried to pay at the car park machine but it turns out we didn't have enough money and it wouldn't reject it. Also, it wouldn't let you pay in notes so that restricted us. We managed to look at the rock formations at the entrance but we would have liked to actually gone in the... More

Fascinating place to visit with wonderful far-reaching views. Wonderful rock formations. My 12 year old son loved climbing over the rocks.

We all enjoyed a fantastic day out at this beautiful rock filled park. How so some of the more precarious stones still stand? It was busy but you didn't feel crowded. Stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Only downside was that NT's museum/tearoom was shut during the Easter holidays.
