An extraordinary place that sets out to challenge, inspire, inform and delight.

Yorkshire Sculpture Park has several indoor galleries, as well as 500 acres of 18th century parkland.

It is an international centre for modern and contemporary art, experienced and enjoyed by thousands of visitors each year.

Situated on the A637, one mile from junction 38 of the M1. Well sign posted and easy to find.

Admission is free. There is a Pay and Display car park.

Open daily 10-6pm / Galleries 10-5pm

The Park is in the grounds of the 18th century estate Bretton Hall, which was a family home until mid 20th century, when it became a College of Further and Higher Education.

Various follies, landscape features and architectural structures dating from the 18th century can still be seen around the Park, including a deer park and deer shelter (recently converted by American sculptor James Turrell into an installation), an ice house, a Camelia house.

Artists working at Yorkshire Sculpture Park often take their inspiration from either the architectural, historical or natural environment most notably Andy Goldsworthy in 2007.
