Our first visit here on the way from Fountains Abbey. Nice place to stop especially if you like climbing ! Otherwise a good place to stroll around and look at the weird rocks that were formed by arctic winds quite a while back. Lots of kids and big kids climbing and running around . Ok for an hour or so... More

We have visited here a number of times as the kids absolutely love it. We always seem to get the weather too although I would imagine it's not the best on a wet day. NT shop and kiosk available for snacks, ice creams, coffees etc. Plenty of places to picnic too, miles of walks and obviously endless rocks for the... More

Lovely area in one of the most spectacular areas in Yorkshire. Plenty of open areas for picnic and for children and adults alike to explore and climb whatever age!! Clean facilities as you would expect from a NT property.

I used to love coming here as a young boy, I was in my element scrambling over these weird rocks. Went again last year and was not disappointed. Great place for a picnic or a nice long walk Make sure you dress for rocks and if you are going with small kids they will inevitably scrape their knees etc so... More

We saw the leaflet about the rocks in the cottage we were renting and decided to visit one morning. When we got there there were children being taken around in groups learning how to climb some of the rocks. They did not make a nuisance of themselves and it looked like they were having a great day. The leaftlet we... More

I visited Brimham Rocks in July 2014 on what was a very hot and sunny day, and in such conditions its a great place to be. Wonderful panoramic scenery and clean fresh air await anyone brave enough to scramble up any of the beautifully diverse rock formations that are scattered around the site; great place for a family picnic or...

Entry is free, there is a £5 charge for the car park. The best thing about the rocks is that you are free to roam, scramble and explore. Nothing is off limits so wear suitable footwear appropriate for climbing, jumping and walking. You need to keep an eye on how high the kids are climbing! We spent a lovely morning... More

Great fun for all the family So unusual adventurous for all well worth a visit. The views you get are breathtaking and on a clear day you can see for miles. When we were there we were able to watch proper rock climbers who had all the proper equipment and made it all look so easy. The visitor centre is... More

Went there today with our 8 year old who really loved all the climbing over high rock formations and clambering through small spaces. We spent 5 hours there but hardly noticed the time fly by! Fantastic views from the rocks as well as surprising rock formations that haven't moved since the Ice age, awesome! The area is vast enough that... More

My day out here was totally spontaneous and yet full of so much fun. I had a free weekend and was searching around the internet for places to go that would not cost me any money and this is what I found. The rock formations and walking trails here are amazingly time consuming, we spent around 3 hours here and... More
