Photography and filming at Brimham Rocks
With weird and wonderful rock formations and stunning views over the Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty it's no surprise that Brimham Rocks is a top destination for shutterbugs and film crews.
"What is this strange place?" is a question we hear every day at Brimham Rocks. The unique landscape is ideal for filling those instagram feeds or the perfect back drop to your TikTok videos.
Some tips for getting those best shots are:
Have fun with shapes and sizes - look out for the 'Idol' rock on our map. You can be clever here and snap a great photo which looks like you're holding up a giant boulder.
Take advantage of heights - there are lots of crevaces between rocks here - you could easily take a photo of a friend below or above you for a dramatic shot. See if you can use the rocks on each side to frame your photo.
Don't forget it's not just about the rocks - There are some of the most beautiful views accross the NIdderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just off the main paths. Hunt them out and you won't be dissapointed. Visit the viewing deck in front of the visitor centre and you can see for miles!
