Tired the kids out!!

Lovely day out. Our boys really enjoyed looking at and especially climbing on the rocks even though the weather wasn't great. We will visit again when it's drier and warmer!

Visited again but in the snow lots of lovely photos taken. It was beautiful if a little cold shame the tea shack was shut. It had been raining the day before and in places the small roads leading to it had large puddles across them.

Fantastic place to wander about, children just love it, as they can scramble about on the rocks as much as they like!

Visited whilst staying in North Yorkshire at the suggestion of my son who had been before with the Cadets. I must admit we weren't expecting a great deal as it didn't sound particularly exciting. However it turned out to be a fantastic day out; climbing on the various rock formations which have to be seen to be believed, and walking... More

A must visit if you're in Harrogate or nearby! The rock formations are fantastic and it makes for a wonderful walk & great photo opportunity too. Although we went in half term we went a little later in the day so it wasn't too packed with families. We would love to go back and have a picnic and explore a... More

When I saw the name of the location and the description, which was about how it's a collection of unusual rocks I was.. Sceptical to say the least. But when we got there it kind of shocked me at these awesome rock formations, I can see this being an unbelievable amount of fun for kids and adults alike. I on... More

I've never visited before and can't believe I missed it! What a great place good parking a cafe and loads to see I recommend it. It was a cold but sunny day when I went so I saw it at its best.

With a group age ranging from 40 to 3 we often find it hard to find activities that suit everyone. Brimham Rocks has it. The teenagers loved it and so did the 3 year old. It was great fun climbing and exploring rocks and it's well presented and has gorgeous views. The only thing we could have hoped for is... More
