Brilliant place to wander round and see all the different shapes of the rocks. It's an awesome sight and we both loved it. We went on a weekend when it was quite busy but it wasn't too overcrowded to get round. Will definitely go back another day maybe mid-week next time.

We've been here loads of times as a family to walk and climb around, as part of a climbing day with school children, brought friends from the north-east and we've use it as a D of E Expedition checkpoint. It's a National Trust site so you pay to park but there is no entrance fee. It's a great place to... More

The rocks are amazing. We visited on a lovely sunny day and the views were spectacular. We really loved it. There is quite a bit of walking but worth it.

A wonderful experience walking through woodland and then every few yards coming across large outcrops of rocks in fascinating shapes and sizes. Very clean. Good sized car park. There were toilets available. The shop and refreshment area were closed but it was out of season and very early morning. We intend to visit again and take our 9 year old... More

'Take a walk amidst the rocks But take away your muck and socks!' Though we live in Yorkshire, and I've cycled past them on the Way of The Roses, we' d never been to Birmham Rocks and Moor. Shame on us! It's an amazing, breath-taking place, full of visual wonders and bizarre shapes cast in gigantic toppleish looking --- rocks!... More

I remember going to Brimham Rocks as a child, and decided to go back with my partner last year. I forgot how much fun it was climbing the rocks, and viewing some of the amazing formations! We enjoyed it so much, we went back again last weekend another couple... It was so much fun, although the weather was misty/drizzley, it... More

This is not the first visit to the rocks but was the first not during the school holidays. The lack of children running around and attempting to climb the rocks made the visit so much more enjoyable. We took in all the rocks and managed the ring walk as well. A very enjoyable day.

Fresh air, great attraction, good for all the family, especially our dog! There is a car parking charge, currently £5 for four hours, but a cheap day out for all the family. Great to bring a picnic and enjoy a day (or a large proportion of it!) in the great outdoors, exploring. The main part of the site is accessible... More

Wow, we really did not expect this place to be so great. We thought it was just going to be a walk around some rocks, how wrong were we! Visually stunning and great for getting lost in. We spent all day there taking the different routes and taking in the stunning scenery, highly recommend a visit.
