Good outdoor fun!

Lovely place to visit with family, lots of rocks suitable for the kids to climb on, plenty of walks long or short. Café and shop too, definitely worth a visit.

Remember change for the parking! Dog and other half loved scrambling around the rocks and moors. Nephew would have loved it too. Look out for ET rock!

We live nearby and pay the national trust monthly for the privilege. Because we walk the dogs here it's cheaper to pay a monthly membership than daily parking. This place is special, lots of history and nice for a family day out. If you live nearby then you should support its upkeep. If you like a walk, bring your wellies... More

What an astonishing sight! So naturally beautiful! If you are going, please check the dates that the gift shop is open because we didn't and it was closed on that day but it would have been lovely to visit the gift shop. Also national trust members, I think you have to have a car park ticket, you can't just rely... More

Stunning views, interesting paths & rocks to climb. Take sturdy shoes & keep an eye on little kids. Fantastic open spaces in this national trust site.

Not really the place for a couple of adults off for a walk. In half term week the paths were looking rather worn and tired. The rocks were Ok for a quick wander around but it all felt too busy and I'd rather walk somewhere with a fresher feel to it.

A great day out doors for the all the family. Good parking and fairly easy access. Great for kids to scramble around and the rock formations are very interesting. Good refreshments on site for ice cream and great for picnics

We spent an afternoon doing the boundary walk (approx 3.5miles) which terminates in amongst the Brimham Rocks. The walk starts from the car park which is £5 for non National Trust members. We printed the map from the NT website and found it to be excellent - detailed and easy to follow. The rocks are amazing and from some of... More

We loved this place. Lots of rocks and caves to climb on. Great for families great for a picnic. Fantastic views! Not too far to walk to see the spectacular rocks naturally placed millions of years ago. Nice little snack shop with hot and cold food and benches but we sat on the rocks. Take coats and good footwear. We... More
