Hours of exploring, climbing, hiding. In rocks. On rocks. Under rocks. Through rocks. Natural landscape of rock formations in a forest. Finished off with a nice cup of tea from the tea cabin. Kids get ice creams.

Luckily we are only approx 20 mins away from brimham rocks so we are fortunate to be able to frequent often. We love it here. Even on the busiest of days you can not see anyone for ages as there is so much space to walk and explore. We have national trust membership so it makes it even easier to... More

Well worth a visit, fantastic landscape and views. Make sure you walk past visitor centre to see the best "balanced" rocks!
