Yorkshire Sculpture Park


Bretton Hall, West Yorkshire, Wakefield, WF4 4LG

An internationally recognised centre for contemporary art, The Yorkshire Sculpture Park is handily situated just off the M1 near Wakefield. Readily accessible from Leeds….. and well worth it! Set up in 1977 as a designated sculpture park in the grounds of an old country house, the YSP holds some of the UK’s best sculptures, all of which are outside. henry Moore, andt Goldsworthy, Anthony Caro, along with many other leading sculptors, all have works on permanent exhibition. The indoor galleries and space outside act as ideal locations for the ever changing displays of other contemporary artists. The beautiful parkland provides the perfect backdrop in which to see these magnificent works of art. Also there are two cafes which serve a range of home-cooked snacks and meals, all to a very high standard. All in all, this makes for a perfect day out! Allow yourself a good few hours for the visit as there’s so much to see.
