I've included Brimham Rocks in a number of walks from the surrounding area and they never fail to impress me and those with whom I walk. The rock formations are impressive and, because I organise walks to take in the rocks around the lunch stop, provide a very interesting place to sit. By that, I mean the outcrops away from... More

A really different experience, rock formations in upper heathland with fantastic views. Parking was reasonable taking into account that entry to the area is free.

This is a lovely place for a walk, The outcrops are very interesting and a great place for children to run around and climb. Spring time for me is the best time before all the foliage is completely out but all the buds etc are showing.

We decided to get out and enjoy the start of spring! Made a pack up and head on over to brimham rocks, just the heads up it is a dog friendly area so if you are scared of dogs or have children who are I wouldn't advise it as such as they are known to be off leashes from owners... More

This is a great place for a nice walk with some great views and interesting surroundings. Car parking isn't cheap, but this place is well worth a visit. It would be great in summer with a nice picnic and some more sun.

Absolutely amazing rocks seeming to stick out from nowhere. Adults and kids alike will want to scramble up and down them - so maybe not a place to your kids if you don't like the idea of them perched ten foot above you. Free attraction but you pay for the parking

In beautiful Nidderdale, an area of outstanding natural beauty, Brimham Rocks is best visited on a good day to enjoy the great vistas and climbing on the many rock formations. There is also a kiosk for refreshments and for water for your dogs. Dogs are allowed on a leash here.

I love it here! We visit quite often even though it's almost an hour away from home. As a childminder I bring the kids here in the holidays, they all love it! The older ones are always asking to come! They climb under strict supervision & adhering to rules & boundaries while the little ones can build their confidence clambering... More
