£8 to park all day. Good toilets. Cafe closed mid-week in winter. Rocks are quite spectacular. Took National Trust walk to Pateley Bridge and back - very scenic.

This is a perfect place to walk the dog, let the children run around and burn off energy and explore the woodland area, nature and climb! If any kids love climbing, this place they will love!!! We spent hours here. Great views too! Just pack a picnic and go !! Great open space !!

Great views, massive rocks to climb all for a small price what more can you ask for. We have been here many times with our 9 year old and always had a great time

Last time I came here was 60 years ago on my first school trip. I vaguely remembered it what a great place for families to visit, children will love it lots of climbing and lovely walks with spectacular scenery.

Word of caution, make sure you arrive with plenty of change for parking. It is quite expensive but well worth it for the maintenance of such a beautiful place.

You can explore as much as you like and stick to the paths for an easier walk if you wish. There are clean toilets and a snack/coffee stand.

All in all I really enjoyed this location.

As the name suggests the rocks have been shaped by millions of years of natural forces (other explanations are available). Great place to experience the outdoors for a walk in fresh air admiring the shapes and rocks and views, scrambling or climbing or watching the antics of climbers. National Trust. Also a good destination for a cycle ride.

Spent a morning here on a chilly, bright autumn day during half-term. Activities had been organised for younger visitors but we enjoyed walking and scrambling around this beautiful and fascinating landscape. Amazing views. Kiosk for refreshments and shop.

This was my third visit to Brimham Rocks, and every visit is like it's the first! The car park is large, and the paths through the site are good (though you can wander off the paths anywhere you like). You get some stunning views out over Nidderdale and of the rock formations themselves. It is fantastic for kids and dogs as well. There is a little cafe offering hot drinks at the far end of the site.

Bear in mind you apparently need to scan your membership card at the parking machines to get a free parking ticket (if you're a member that is, otherwise you need to pay, which also covers access to the rocks) but there were National Trust staff there when we arrived to help us out.
