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.

My sister visited and we had kids ranging from pushchair age to teens. What to do? We went on the off chance to here and were not disappointed. This is a huge park with massive natural boulders for the kids to climb on. Surprisingly there are no notices saying do not touch or do not climb and the kids loved... More

This rock site was a favorite for my family of six (ages 5-45)! It's free of charge, unrestricted, and beautiful. A great site if you have young children and do not enjoy intensive hikes because there are easy and enjoyable, walking trails. If you do want to climb the massive rocks, dress accordingly.

What a fantastic day out. Being allowed to climb on the rocks is amazing - what wonderful sculptures the weather and years have made. Well done National Trust for helping to make this a fantastic place to visit. The shop, exhibition and little outdoor café are perfect.

It was a beautiful sunny day (Monday 03 Nov) and there were plenty of people there but the visitor center including cafe and shop were closed. Such a shame because they would have done a roaring trade!

This National Trust property includes a large area of fantastic rock formations which are worth seeing. The cafe/shop is good. The approach roads are narrow and you need to be careful.

I specifically semi-retired to North Yorkshire to be close to Brimham Rocks, so that I could walk my dogs there regularly. It was a favourite picnic place when I was a kid, and if I was ever asked where I wanted to go for a run out, I'd always say Brimham. It's the worlds best open air playground, with rock... More

Stumbled upon this place whilst driving from Harrogate through the Yorkshire Dales. Very interesting and worth a look. The parking prices are pretty steep, but luckily National Trust staff/members park for free. Definitely worth a look if you're passing. It's an amazing playground for children and adults alike. I know my husband would have happily spent the day climbing all... More
