As we were staying not too far away a visit here was a must. The rocks are just stunning and it's a joy to wander and climb on these wonders of nature

Brimham Rocks is a perfect place to get some fresh air, have the kids let off steam and just enjoy some quality time with friends and family. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone that struggles to move comfortably and walk across different terrains.

A great walk - channeling my geological geek! A Natural Trust area, well maintained, rangers on hand to answer questions. Great for all ages. Large car park. Fabulous out door coffee shop - lots of picnic tables . Amazing views.

You could get a scooter along the main path to the shop/coffee shop but not off the beaten track to the rocks.
