Today I love: Yorkshire Sculpture Park
What: YSP is an open air art gallery set over 500 acres of Yorkshire countryside. There are between 70-100 sculptures, which are hidden in a variety of locations both in the park and within the indoor galleries. The sculptures are incredibly varied, ranging from classical sculpture through to sculptures created from recycled household goods.
Where: West Bretton, Wakeﬁeld, WF4 4JX – https://goo.gl/maps/GdNrziB1uGY4ZPLB6
Why: There are very few family attractions in the UK that genuinely provide something for all the family for next to no money, but this is one of them. You only need to pay for parking and then entry to the park is free.
When we went the weather was pretty windy and cold, but we braved the elements and brought a picnic to keep costs down. There were lots of places to eat and even though the park was very busy it didn’t take long to get a a cup of tea from the cafe. After lunch, we explored the grounds, finding a variety of interesting sculptures.
We wound our way back to the main building and the indoor galleries – we were impressed by the variety on show and the way that children had been thought about. My daughter and I really enjoyed completing some of the kids activities and they really brought out her creative side.
How Much: Parking is £12.00 for the day.
