Great fun for everyone

Great place to go for a walk and climb for people of all ages. Take a picnic and enjoy it at the top of one of the rocks for some truly beautiful sights.

If you have children that just like to climb on everything then this is the place to go. We all had a fantastic time. Spent 6 hours there and could have stayed longer just had tired grumpy children.

A bit of a scramble but worth it on a clear day for the views. Interesting rock outcrops which can be climbed by the fit and active.

A fascinating place to visit, particularly on a good summer's day. Lots of easy bouldering, and some slightly harder stuff for climbers. A great place for kids. A shame the bus services aren't more frequent.

Will put you in mind of the flintstones. Oddly shaped rocks perched atop pebbles (not yet managed to push it off but will keep trying). Unlike many national trust sites, seem less inclined to charge you a ridiculous sum for a cheese sandwich. Worth a visit.

A massive range of rocks to climb, run around, even shake a stick at. It brought out the explorer in all the family. Highly recommended.

We went with a group of 11 to Brimham Rocks. The age range was 9 to 45. We enjoyed several hours of walking along, through, and in between the rock formations. We climbed to the top of many and chickened out climbing a few. I suggest packing a picnic and enjoying it while you are there. The park does offer... More

Good for all the family. Paths are buggy friendly . Climbing the rocks is self limiting. We have been going to Brimham rocks for over 30 years and take all our visitors there. They are unique, so much better than man made facilities
