Owner description: An amazing collection of weird and wonderful rock formations: a great day out for families, climbers and those who love the outdoors.
Reviewed January 2, 2013

A really nice place to go for a few hours, being able to climb over the rocks adds a nice fun twist to the usual walk, and if you're brave enough to climb to the top then you are rewarded with some fantastic views over the surrounding area.

Just try not to go when it's very windy, like we did :s

And just to quantify the previous complaint about parking; parking is £4, hardly extortionate. And this money doesn't line the pockets of a businessman, it goes to the national trust, so is effectively a charitable donation.

I have been to Brimham rocks quite a few times growing up and as an adult, only as an adult do you realiser the extortionate parking costs, there used to be a honest box In which you could put whatever you felt like for your parking fees.

Utter same I won't be going back due to the parking costs out of principal it's extortionate
And entry fee would be preferable

As for the site itself its excellent for a quick trip out.

Amazing shapes carved in the Ice Age. Children can be adventurous and free, dogs on lead, Visitor centre, and wild moorland with lots of blueberries to pick in season. Thankfully not commercialised but you can get tea and ice cream standing outside and there are toilets

We went for a family walk with the dog. Our three young boys love climbing on the rocks and we all enjoyed the breathtaking views. Had a picnic lunch from the cafe shack; great pork pies, sausage rolls, toasties and homemade minestrone soup - kept us warm on a cold November day. A perfect family trip out.

This is your basic rock garden, you can walk for miles and never see the same place twice. There are plenty of scenic spots for a picnic, or just let the kids run wild.
