Really interesting place to visit, great views and rock formations. Car park is £6 minimum which is excessive if you only plan to stay for a couple of hours.

Didn't really know what to expect and it was January so we thought we might be the only ones here as it was soooo cold brrrrrr, but amazingly the car park was buzzing. We only saw a fraction of the rocks and they were brilliant....More

Wouldn't bother going here out the season when the cafe and gift shop are both shut as the car parking is £6 for under 4 hours! We are outdoors types and were well clothed but, on a freezing mizzy January day, we could stay for...More

We loved clambering through the rocks almost as much as all the kids there! The views are stunning and it's such a unique place, rather surreal. I'd recommend anyone to go once to marvel at how such a place came to be.

Anyone can google this attraction to understand more but reading about rocks and amazing geology might not persuade some visitors to spend the £6 to park at national trust site. But you have to see it to believe it. One day (in many years time)...More

This is a really fantastic place. It was shocked by the scale of it - just how many odd shaped rock formations there were across what is probably a 1 sq mile radius. It's good to get there earlier as it does get quite busy...More

Had a lovely time at Brimham, my sister had won a prize to name one of the rocks 20 years ago so was a blast from the past! The nearby picnic fields were pleasant and extremely rural, a proper nature trip for the environmetalists! Wooden...More

Took Grandsons and a Jack Russell for an adventure. All had a great time charging around the rocks, climbing, running and chasing sticks - the dog, not the boys! If you are not a NT member the car park is expensive. Well worth the visit...More

This is a great place to visit if you're a National Trust member, as the car park is free in that case, or £5 otherwise. Views are brilliant, lots of photo-opportunities of the rock formations too. Plus gentle, peaceful walks, as long as you don't...More

Yes you can, sure there was bike racks in the car park there too. Might be some routes around there on the National Trust website?

There is no reduction for parking for the disabled. There are several paths for wheelchair users but some of the areas are not accessible. Most of the views can be accessed by wheelchair.
