Yorkshire Sculpture Park


YSP welcomes families and aims to be as family-friendly as possible. In the open air, children are free to run around, making the most of our 500 acres of historic parkland. 

With 80 works in the open air, there are many hidden treasures to hunt for, and unlike traditional galleries, at YSP you can touch many of the sculptures. Family favourites in the Park include Playground by artist collective Greyworld, a musical sculpture that children will love to step across, and Crawling by Sophie Ryder, a half-woman, half-hare made from casts of domestic items and plastic toys.

Families will also enjoy walks around the lakes and surrounding woodland where they'll discover bridges, follies and incredible historical features including a Greek-style summer house, a now land-locked Boat House, an Obelisk, Stepping Stones and a magical Shell Grotto.

Yorkshire Sculpture Park Review - 14th March, 2017

Great spot to take the kids, you could spend all day here in the summer.

Lots of free things to do, but be sure to take planty of change for the car park. 

Also the craft shop, gallery and cafe are great, so if it is raining it's still worth a visit.
