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

A wild and primitive setting that has the benefit of being well visited and the cafe/stand has good hot food. The geology is intriguing and visitors are met with surprises round every corner. Great for kids to climb, adults too! Views are great on the edge of the rocky areas and there is a quieter (less people) moor area to... More

I take my niece and nephew there as they love playing hide a seek (and did it a bit too well on one occasion!). Lovely setting and well worth a visit.

We had an absolutely brilliant time. Great walk around, loved seeing all the different formation of rock. The dog loved to long walk to. We had a pretty clear day so the views were absolutely breathtaking. Definitely recommend to family and friends. And will definitely visit again in the summer.

Lovely to walk amongst the different rock formations. The views from there were lovely too, despite it being a grey day. We felt that the car park was costly, though, as there was no reduction in the price for only being there a couple of hours.
