Yorkshire Sculpture Park

The UK's leading open-air gallery



Yorkshire Sculpture Park is a pioneering place that aims to challenge, inspire, inform and delight, welcoming over 500,000 visitors – including 48,000 learning visits – each year.

The Yorkshire Sculpture Park is the UK’s leading outdoor art gallery with 500 acres of beautiful historic parkland and five indoor galleries. Open daily, you can always feel welcome to wander its grounds, which are littered with sculptures each as weird and wonderful and showstopping as the next.

With numerous exhibits rotating across the year, and new artwork arriving all the time, the landscape at Yorkshire Sculpture Park is always changing. Their events are also diverse, with kids, young adults, and more senior members of the community invited to meet and discuss the artwork in a safe and inquisitive space. Some have fallen in love with the park so much, and have been going there so often, that you might actually mistake them for one of the many sculptures!

It celebrated 40 years of art without walls in 2017. Let’s hope it can celebrate many more with your support.
