Visited this National Trust attraction with very little expectation. However, was completely blown away with it. At the time of our visit, there was snow on the ground which only added to the atmosphere of the place. Great place to visit for all ages. £5 parking for 4 hours which was reasonable, given that there is no entrance fee.

The rock formations are amazing! Don't go at weekend or when the kids are off school (unless you have kids of course!) it's packed! The photo opportunities are endless (not when kids are there though). All this and a basic café, what more could you ask for?

great place for the children to explore, loads of climbing & exploring although it was slippery on the ground due to a covering of snow so care to be taken because uneven ground & steep slopes, but would be a great place to take children and amazing rock formations to view.

Excellent day trip, had good ice cream (white chocolate magnum), fun walks and a bit of climbing. Got the bus which was a bit of a walk but very good

The fantastically shaped rock pillars and boulders are always worth a visit but today the ground was covered in snow adding an extra visual treat. Loads of people were there but so many ways to mooch it was never a problem. Lovely afternoon. Could have supped a cuppa if the tea stall had been open but it was Christmas hols... More

I couldn't decide which formations were most interesting so I uploaded plenty of photos of this site. Some huge rocks seem to have fallen, neatly stacked like a pile of books, while others rested precariously on the top of a much smaller rock, giving a mushroom effect. Part even resembles a lost city. The views of the countryside from the... More

as National Trust members we visited Brimham Rocks with our 2 young children. Rock climbing was great for the 6 year old but very difficult for our child with a buggy. Overall we had an excellent few hours there.

This a fascinating place for all ages. Plenty of things to do. A perfect picnic area and a great area for walks of all distances and types. But addults must think of there childrens safety, because of some of the adventurous rock areas.

The parking is good, and free to NT members. Good toilet facilities. With a winter coating of snow the rocks were amazing. This attraction will appeal to all ages. The views across the valley were sublime in the winter sun. Good to visit when in Harrogate or visiting Pateley Bridge or Fountains Abbey
