Did you know that there is a FREE trail to do at Doncaster Lakeside with the kids?
Dramatic moorland rock formations. Explore Brimham Rocks, and have a great day out at nature’s playground.
This amazing collection of weird and wonderful rock formations makes a great day out for families, climbers and those wanting to enjoy the simple pleasures of fresh air and magnificent views over Nidderdale.
We visited recently (August 2020). It’s a wonderful place, the kids loved climbing (my heart was in my mouth a few times as they climbed bigger rocks) but we all loved exploring. The toilets were open and social distancing measures in place.
There’s no admission charge at Brimham Rocks. Parking is free for National Trust members.
Non National Trust members, our car parking charges are as follows: £4 up to three hours, £5 thereafter
This is a fabulous park, free to get in aside from parking. There are then optional extras (such as the splash pool in summer or the fairground rides).
Have to say, we have been loads of times and not had to spend a penny – there is loads to keep the children entertained without spending a penny. Play areas for big and little children, sand pit and lots of space to run around and picnic.
