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 19 August 2014

I was hoping for a different experience at Brimham Rocks. We went on a Saturday over summer holiday and it was crawling with people. It's a cool site, but there were so many people around. The views are really beautiful. Parking is 5 pounds for 4 hours. I kind of hate that parking is such a rip off.

What a great Natural playground. Climbed a few high ones to stunning views. Pity I'd forgot my camera.;-( These rock formations are awesome. We felt like kids exploring the wild west.
Would definitely recommend a visit.

Wonderful scenery, with rock formations of all sizes for kids to climb, squeeze through, and hide behind. Parking is a few pounds, other than this there is no charge. Snack bar, picnic tables, toilets, and a small museum and shop. I visited with a friend, and between us we had four children from six to ten years old, all really enjoyed the day and easily passed a few hours.

A great day out. Although remember it is often easier to climb up than down - fortunately tall helpful people were near enough to assist when one of our party got stuck on top of a rock!

Lovely place. We enjoyed rock climbing and the views of Yorkshire are spectacular. We chose to picnic at Brimham Rocks and had such a lovely time. There was a small cafe so we could get a fresh cup of coffee during the day. Great way to spend a sunny afternoon. Would definitely recommend.

These extensive large rock formations are almost unbelievable. Delightful place for children to explore. Interesting and informative displays in the visitors' centre. May be muddy - have appropriate footwear, and it can be cold, catching the wind. Good choice of light refreshments; picnic benches and in adverse weather you can take your picnic into the visitors' centre. Interesting demonstration of dry-stone walling when we visited - you could have a go and chat to the experts.
