Great day out at Brimham Rocks

Took my son here last month and he loved it. Plenty of rocks to climb, great views and a nice picnic area to have a quick bite to eat. Would highly recommend a visit here

A good half day out with family. Lots of rocks to climb and hide behind. Great scenery. The shop and information centre are good as is the outdoor cafe. There are picnic tables.A large car park.

The place is great and much more expansive than what you would think. The rocks are very unique and cool to see but roaming around the fringes adds adventure.

Parking is free for National Trust members but you have to scan your membership card in the machine to obtain a parking ticket to display in your car. The walk from the car park to the rocks, toilets & cafe are up an incline that's not too steep. Once you arrive at the rocks you can climb them for a... More

Growing up in Yorkshire the iconic Brimham Rocks was a frequent weekend trip for my brothers and I. Perfect place to run off steam and work up an appetite, my 17 year old US born daughter was very impressed with this place too

Stunning views and walks can be enjoyed along the footpaths, although there is some steep climbs in places and take care on the steps going up from the car park.

Went here with my partner and dog, great if you enjoy a good walk. You can climb most of the rocks and look onto a lovely view. It is free but it cost us £6 to park for 4 hours, we did the walk within 2 and treat ourselves to an ice cream afterwards!

Spent a weekend in Harrogate and looked for for areas of interest to visit whilst there. Thought the £6.00 car park charge for a pensioner was a bit steep but was impressed in what I found. At my age 69 I couldn't climb the amazing rock formations but could envisage a movie being made in this location. I will certainly... More
