Brimham Rocks

Bouldering at Brimham Rocks

Mysterious Brimham Rocks in North Yorkshire make for a great day out. You can scramble around the 30 ft rocks, take part in bouldering or climbing, or simply have a picnic. It’s free entry too!

“Brimham Rocks is one of our favourite days out in Yorkshire. We love visiting with the kids when the weather is warm for a fab day, scrambling over rocks, picking bilberries and generally just lounging about in the sun. It’s free entry – though you have to pay for parking (National Trust members park free). We normally take a picnic, but there’s a shop on the site that sells a decent range of sarnies if you can’t be bothered to make your own.”James & Lyndsey, Yorkshire's Best Adventures

About Brimham Rocks:

Brimham Rocks is a great spot for climbing, hiking, rambling or just lounging around with a nice picnic.
The incredible formations have been sculpted over the millennia by ice, wind and rain – and the area has been designated an area of outstanding beauty.

Managed by the National Trust, Brimham Rocks is a great day out whether you’re with friends or a young family. There’s rock climbing, abseiling and bouldering on offer for all levels, as well as ‘weaseling’ for kids: scrambling through tight spaces, around twisty passages and discovering the rocks’ nooks and crannies. Courses are offered by the good folk over at The Harrogate Climbing Centre.

It’s also a great spot for ramblers – and the Nidderdale Way, a 53-mile circular walk in the Yorkshire Dales passes through the site.

Brimham Rocks welcomes cyclists, making a great stop for coffee and cake, and there’s even a Brimham Rocks Photography Society – a group of amateur snappers who get together for shoots.

Open 365 days a year, it’s offers breathtaking views over North Yorkshire – on a clear day, you can even see as far as York Minster.
