The Yorkshire Sculpture Park

With over 100 sculptures from world-renowned artists, this is a must-visit for art lovers amongst us. The sculptures and installations are scattered around the Bretton Hall Estate along an open-air walk so along with soaking in the plentiful culture on offer you’ll get a great walk in the lovely Yorkshire countryside. With art from Barbara Hepworth, Damien Hirst, David Nash, and many more we are sure there will be something for everyone’s taste.

Where can I find a unique gallery in Yorkshire?

The Yorkshire Sculpture Park is a great place to see some world-class art while getting a breath of fresh air in the glorious Yorkshire countryside.

Talking of taste, on-site is The Weston which is a delicious restaurant with locally sourced food and brilliant coffee. The perfect place to have a rest after exploring the grounds. The Weston also has a Gallery inside with some more sculptures and some paintings and tapestries. Overall it is a great addition to a day out for any art lover or even someone just looking for a walk in the countryside with a difference.
