Great place to take the kids but get there early on Sundays and Bank Holidays to avoid the crowds. Parking can be difficult if you leave it late.

We visited here and completed the "intro to two-caching" session. If you decide to get cache load sites before you visit 4g and 3G reception is very patchy. Arrive early to avoid car park queues and space. I would urge people to take the national trust yearly membership as a family we save a fortune!

What a great place! Much bigger than I had imagined - goes on for ages, with loads of opportunity for scrambling up rocks and down hills - though if your kids are still under 7-ish, you probably do need to follow them and keep a close eye o exactly what they are climbing as there are pretty steep bits in...

unusual place, but great for a ramble and picnic area. All the family can enjoy Brimham, but make sure you have good stout footwear.

Visited Brimham Rocks today as it was one of my husbands favourite places as a child and our kids loved it just as much !! They ran around and climbed rocks for over 6 hours generally enjoying nature as its best. My son is already begging to go back and says best day ever. Highly recommended.

Beautiful site, however parking is a minimum of £5 only payable in coins. We had to hike to the other side of the park to get change at the shop, only to find the shop attendant rude and unhelpful. Thanks for nothing National Trust.

The walk around Brimham Rocks was lovely, and the view was very beautiful form the top. Parking was expensive - but this is standard for National Trust sites without membership.

Weird and wonderful rock formations, coupled with stunning views. The rocks presented an excellent playground for our teenagers (and shelter from a bit of rain). Would have to supervise little children well, but free access to the rocks was really refreshing and appreciated. Charge for car parking was a bit steep...
