We were visiting the area and chose to visit Brimham Rocks for the afternoon, it was very busy and the carpark was pretty full. Being National Trust members we didn’t have to pay, we had an enjoyable few hours wandering round and climbing on the...More

Enjoyed walking and scrambling around the rocks. Worth a visit. You have to pay for parking and wardens patrolling during the day
