I had never heard of this place until recently and was suprised that a free day out is on my doorstep at Pately Bridge near Ripon in Noorth Yorkshire. The only let down was the showers of rain effecting my climbing as I thought I was a teenager again. Even the Mrs enjoyed climbing the rocks. This attraction is just... More

I was hoping for a different experience at Brimham Rocks. We went on a Saturday over summer holiday and it was crawling with people. It's a cool site, but there were so many people around. The views are really beautiful. Parking is 5 pounds for 4 hours. I kind of hate that parking is such a rip off.

What a great Natural playground. Climbed a few high ones to stunning views. Pity I'd forgot my camera.;-( These rock formations are awesome. We felt like kids exploring the wild west. Would definitely recommend a visit.

Wonderful scenery, with rock formations of all sizes for kids to climb, squeeze through, and hide behind. Parking is a few pounds, other than this there is no charge. Snack bar, picnic tables, toilets, and a small museum and shop. I visited with a friend, and between us we had four children from six to ten years old, all really... More

Lovely place. We enjoyed rock climbing and the views of Yorkshire are spectacular. We chose to picnic at Brimham Rocks and had such a lovely time. There was a small cafe so we could get a fresh cup of coffee during the day. Great way to spend a sunny afternoon. Would definitely recommend.

These extensive large rock formations are almost unbelievable. Delightful place for children to explore. Interesting and informative displays in the visitors' centre. May be muddy - have appropriate footwear, and it can be cold, catching the wind. Good choice of light refreshments; picnic benches and in adverse weather you can take your picnic into the visitors' centre. Interesting demonstration of... More

This is a wonderful place for children to play. It far exceeded my children's expectations. They are aged 10 and 8 and played happily here for a good few hours. The opportunities for climbing really cool and plentiful rock formations is second to none. Yes, It is a little bit more commercialised than i would ideally like; but my children... More

Make up a picnic and throw the kids in the car and you're all set for a fun-filled day at Brimham Rocks. This is a National Trust property so it's free for members but at only £6 per car for a full day it's a cheap day out by anybody's standards. The kids and dog (and big kids too) will... More

Spend a very special day at Brimham Rocks with family. With children of various ages it is sometimes difficult to find something for everyone. Well, this fit the bill perfectly. We all had so much fun climbing all the different sized rocks. My only criticism is that the toilets are difficult to find even with signposts so I suggest you... More

Visited with my wife and 10 year old son for the second year in a row. We were lucky that both days we have been that it was fantastic weather. The whole day was brilliant with loads of trails to follow and rocks to climb. If you are into health and safety this is not the place for you! There... More
