Described as “art without walls”, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park is one of the county’s top attractions. The park showcases a wonderful curation of works (usually around 80 at any one time), with a stunning rural backdrop. It all makes for a wonderful day out…

I have been to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park a couple of times now and it never disappoints. There are a mixture of both permanent and loaned works, so there’s always something new to see. Also, the grounds are pretty big, so you can get a substantial walk out of it.

I would highly recommend checking out the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, especially if the weather happens to be nice. Yorkshire is a fantastic destination with so much to see, and its sculpture Park is one of many good reasons to visit. What’s more, entry to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park is completely free.
