Brimham Rocks… One of the Natural Wonders of Yorkshire

Brimham Rocks is one of the most amazing places I’ve been to in Yorkshire… formed over 400 million years ago, they are a collection of weird and wonderful rock formations which you can climb and explore for hours on end!

Carved by ice, rain and sandstorms over millions of years, what was once a mountain range to rival the Himalayas, you can now explore and see strange rocks such as The Dancing Bear, The Dog and The Gorilla.

Being at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales and Nidderdale, you can also see amazing views for miles around, meaning once you’re tired from exploring the labyrinth of rocks and paths, you can pick a spot to sit and relax to enjoy the breath-taking views.

There are some info boards around helping you to spot each rock, which I may have spent a little bit too much time looking over and created a bit of a queue behind me! You can also pick up an info pack from the cabin in the car park if you don’t want to get stuck behind me!

It’s a great way to spend a few hours, or you can easily make a full day of it if you want to roam a little further and take in one of the many walking routes heading off into the surrounding countryside. A perfect day out for the whole family!

Where is Brimham Rocks?

10 miles from Harrogate on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales and Nidderdale, postcode to get there is HG3 4DW

Do you have to pay for Brimham Rocks?

Entry is free, but the car park costs £6 for 4 hours or £9 for all day

Also close-by are Pateley Bridge, a beautiful market town with some great local shops and pubs to explore, and The Coldstones Cut, an amazing art installation which is the largest and highest in Yorkshire.
