Yorkshire Sculpture Park

While our kitchen is being extended we’ve had to move out of our house for a few weeks. Perfect excuse to jump in a hire car and head to Sheffield to visit some friends. We rented a house through airbnb (thoroughly recommended!) and spent 2 weeks exploring the Peak District. Such a beautiful part of the world. One of my favourite days was spent at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

It’s a vast place with sculptures by the likes of Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Antony Gormley, Julian Opie – and many more.

500 acres of fields, hills, woodland, lakes and formal gardens combine to create a beautiful landscape and stunning setting for Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Yorkshire Sculpture Park is a pioneering place that aims to challenge, inspire, inform and delight, welcoming over 300,000 visitors, including 40,000 learning visits each year.

The kids loved it just as much as us. Bring a picnic blanket and spend a full day and then put another day aside to go back. There is so much to see.

And entry is free! I’m really keen to go back as we didn’t get to see half of it.
