Great concept but poor implementation along with probably, no certainly the worst attraction map and completely useless signposting. Some excellent sculptures but poor interpretation panels.

Too much to see and experience in half a day, so we will have to return soon! New installations are positioned so intriguingly that you have to explore, discovering even more.

We loved our trip to Yorkshire Sculpture Park and would definitely visit again. Such lovely grounds with interesting sculptures, all well spaced and looked after impeccably. We had lunch in the cafe which was really good value for money.

Yes the park has trails and paths all around. Getting close to some of the sculptures maybe difficult when further onto the grass. There are lifts in the main building and disabled parking near the entrance. Bill
