About
Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) is the UK’s leading outdoor art gallery and an international centre for modern and contemporary sculpture. It is an independent charitable trust and registered museum situated in the 18th-century Bretton Hall estate in West Yorkshire. Founded in 1977 by Executive Director Peter Murray, YSP was the first sculpture park in the UK, and is the largest of its kind in Europe, providing the only place in Europe to see Barbara Hepworth’s 'The Family of Man' in its entirety alongside a significant collection of sculpture, including bronzes by Henry Moore and site-specific works by Andy Goldsworthy, David Nash and James Turrell. YSP mounts a world-class, year-round temporary exhibitions programme including some of the world’s leading artists across six indoor galleries and 500 acres of open air. YSP also offers an outstanding learning and family programme, award-winning shops and restaurants, a varied events programme, and a beautiful setting to enjoy nature.

    Great day outdoors
    A vast park where you could easily spend the day and still not see everything. Some really interesting and thought-provoking sculptures which are really brought to life by their setting. Love that you can bring a picnic or eat in the cafe. There's an app that's meant to help you navigate the park but it's really poor and definitely needs to be rethought as all it did was frustrate us! I would definitely visit again next time I'm in the area. It goes without saying that comfortable shoes/trainers are a must!
    Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review and for sharing your feedback with us. Your experience of using the Bloomberg App will certainly be passed onto the relevant department as all feedback is very valuable and welcome. Thank you for supporting YSP and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Best wishes YSP

    Lovely walks but overpriced
    I really love this park, but it is simply too expensive to go now. I took two friends and it cost £27 for three of us! Some of the sculptures have been here for ten years so it wasn’t like I was going to look at new exhibitions. I’ll be going elsewhere for scenic walks with friends now.
    Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we are sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the price to enter YSP. The cost of a ticket provides much needed income and not only helps us to deliver a unique visitor experience, but also contributes to the upkeep of the estate. As a registered charitable trust and museum, we rely on the income from the entry ticket system and from donations to remain open. Founded in 1977, we are the leading international centre for modern and contemporary sculpture in the UK and costs £14,500 a day to open to the public. YSP’s existence means that the former Bretton Estate, previously inaccessible to a wide public for over 1,000 years, is accessible for public benefit. As well as bringing world-class art to Yorkshire, YSP is responsible for the conservation of 6 Grade II listed buildings and 12 Grade II listed heritage features. We have an ever changing indoor and outdoor exhibition programme and over 500 acres of historic landscape for you to explore, populated with over 100 sculptures on both long- and short-term loan and, several indoor gallery spaces all of which, we believe makes YSP exceptional value for money. Kind regards The YSP team

    Great park but poor staff
    Great park but poor proactive staff. Went past the underground galleries to walk around the park intending to visit them in the last hour before closing. Got back at 4 oclock and the door was locked. Went to information desk and was told that they close them at 4 o'clock, I explained that I assumed they would remain open until 5 when the park closed. I was told that I shouldn't assume and was handed a booklet with the times of opening etc. When I read the times it said the galleries were open to 5! I showed the girl at the desk and she then said they had printed the wrong times in the booklet. I pointed out that it was our first visit and considering the high price of entry I would expect the galleries to remain open as long as the park as unlike a restaurant no cleaning up was needed. I also found out a map was available but when we collected our tickets on arrival nothing was offered, again not that important but a little thought in going the extra mile when I explained it was our first visit would be great. No offer to give a complementary ticket to see the underground galleries on a return visit even if I felt wasn't needed but given the circumstances around the poor customer relations it could have been offered. I will go again as its a great park but just be wary of the service you get with your visit.
    Thank you for visiting YSP and sharing your experience with us. Pleased to hear you enjoyed our vast park. All feedback is useful for us to continue to develop our visitor experiences. With numerous indoor galleries and food and drink outlets across YSP, we list our opening times on our website to help people plan and make the most of our day, including our winter and summer opening hours. Our new Spring Seasonal Guide features opening times from 27th March onwards. We had been a little hasty displaying this booklet and so we have noted the feedback for future planning and coordination. All indoor galleries close one hour before the grounds close throughout the year (4pm winter, 5pm summer). In addition to visiting indoor exhibitions, entry to YSP enables visitors to explore 500 acres of historic landscape, see over 100 outdoor sculptures and enjoy miles of pathways around our lakes and through our country park. Maps are also available on the website, outside the Visitor Centre, The Weston and Learning Building and from our information desk. We also have a large version of the map located on the walkway to the Visitor Centre and further maps and routes are also featured on our app (Bloomberg Connects). Our Front of House team are extremely passionate about YSP and this enthusiasm is shared with visitors through interactions at our ticket areas, indoor and outdoor galleries, and information desk. We were honoured to receive a Visit England Gold Accolade for our full-round experience and service. In this circumstance, we offered the opportunity to discuss your visit with a manager which was declined. We would be very happy to say hello during your next visit. Thank you again for supporting YSP, we look forward to welcoming you again soon. Best wishes. YSP

    Great place to visit, just not revisit
    Let me start, I love this place, I did used to go 2 or 3 times a year and it was really nice. Pay just for car parking, take the dog around the grounds, have a look for anything new, spend about 90 minutes. Now the model has changed and you pay for each person its just not very good value for money, if you have never been or not for a long time then it's great still, but for me not that much changes in exhibitions, I'm not paying £40 to walk around a (nice) park and see maybe one new thing.

    Nice place but overpriced cafe
    Large grounds to explore you can easily make a full day of it. Car park was well set out on gravel track so will be fine on muddy days. The café prices are extortionate would advise to bring a picnic as there are picnic benches to make use of.

    We visit at least once a year as things to see change every so often. Lots to see both indoors and outdoors. Beautiful views and interesting exhibitions. We take our own food as cafe is quite expensive and can get very busy.

    Middle class only
    Pre the pandemic we used to visit quite frequently and loved it. It was free to walk in off the bus with the dog or we would drive and pay the reasonable parking free. I'm happy to pay some money and support the charity, but now it's £9 per person it is just too expensive at difficult times. I wish they offered a reduced price ticket for just the grounds as I'm not allowed inside with the dog anyway. Looks like I'm going to have to miss out visiting now which is a disappointing.
    Dear, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us about our admission ticket pricing. A visit to Yorkshire Sculpture Park offers access to over 500 acres of 18th century parkland where over 100+ outdoor sculptures are currently on display. Visitors can spend the whole day with us exploring the country park, formal gardens, and lakeside paths. We have three outdoor seating areas where dogs are welcome; situated at the Weston, the outdoor seating for the Coffee Shop on the ground floor of the main visitor centre and the outdoor seating at the Learning Café. YSP is an independent charitable trust and registered museum which relies on ticket sales to support its work. We are committed to making our ticket price as affordable as possible whilst still ensuring that we can continue to care for our heritage landscape and host a worldclass exhibitions programme. Being accessible to as many people as possible is something that exists at our core. Therefore, we have multiple types of tickets available including an Open Concession and free entry for 25s and under. Every visit to YSP is hugely important to us so thank you for your continued support over the years. Best wishes, YSP

    Really Enjoyable Day Out but …..
    We have had the YSP on out Bucket List for many years. However, being based in Cambridgeshire it’s a bit of a trek. So with a weekend I. Yorkshire planned YSP was on the top on the list to visit. Easy to find, friendly staff to guide your arrival and good parking, our trip was all set to go. Thought we would start with a cold drink as it was a hot day … £2.80 for a can of Fanta! Really??? Anyway the sculptures were thought provoking and the park site itself magnificent - after 2 hours we headed home but thought we had earned an ice cream. 2 scoops, £5:30. Really?? We were just a couple but I can imagine the cost with a hungry young family. Entrance was reasonably priced with under 25s going free but once in provinces are a bit steep.
    Thank you for your feedback on your recent visit to YSP. It’s great to hear you found the park to be magnificent. YSP is an independent charitable trust and registered museum which relies on food and drink sales as vital income to remain open and support its work. We work hard to engage with local suppliers and deliver a fresh sustainable offering in our catering outlets. We have experienced significant cost price increases this year and although we have absorbed many and maintained our tariffs, in some areas we have been forced to pass on increases to our visitors resulting in some products retailing at perceived premium prices. We pride ourselves on providing a catering offering inclusive to all our visitors and actively promote our 5 for £5.00 lunch bag offer, selected ice creams at £2.00 and chilled drinks from £1.30. Chilled drinking water is also available at all outlets and points in the park, and we encourage visitors to fill their own bottles and also enjoy a picnic if this is their choice to self-cater their visit with plentiful picnic benches in lovely, shaded areas. best wishes, YSP

    Enjoyable
    Really enjoyed a few hours here. Without a doubt will be buying the annual ticket. One off visit costs £9 or £6 for an adult which is good value and includes parking think it’s reasonable and on par with other places local like Lotherton Hall. Very dog friendly with pleasant walks and stunning scenery. The one thing that annoyed me was the takeaway cafe which do not provide trays. So how do I walk back to inside/out door seating with the 4 coffees 3 sandwiches and cakes I’ve just bought??? Trays are pretty essential in a cafe which isn’t just takeaway as the the staff stated to me because guess what you can sit inside. No really very customer friendly is it.
    We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your time at YSP and thank you for helping us to identify how we can better improve our visitor experience. Your feedback has been passed on to our catering team for consideration, thank you for supporting us and we look forward to welcoming you back soon. With best wishes, YSP

Headed to the Sculpture Park on an Autumn's day. It was very peaceful. There is a lot of great sculptures that rotate with new exhibitions frequently. I would recommend five hours to comfortably get around the grounds to see all the sculptures. There is coffee shops spread out around the grounds. I would also recommend bringing walking boots as it can be pretty muddy in places.

I came here for an excellent day out with my boyfriend and his parents. I had been here a couple of times as a 13/14 year old, which is now a decade ago, so I wasn't sure what to expect.
There had been a treacherous, treacherous storm the previous day, so part of the park was closed. The staff were very informative and helpful about this, answering my boyfriend's mum's early morning call, and discounting our tickets for our trouble.
We took a leisurely stroll around the park, taking in the beauty of not only the sculptures and artwork, but of the surrounding nature too. There were many interesting sculptures. My favourites included the sofa/car, the naked woman (thought provoking) and the giant hot water bottle. We stopped at a couple of cafes along the way, also browsing the extensive gift shops.
As my boyfriend's mum said, our day "surpassed [her] expectations." His dad was also impressed, only being let down by a piece of infrastructure in the cafe which blocked his view from the beauty of the park. Fortunately, our day wasn't completely ruined by this!

Superb staff who take an interest in you having the best experience possible. Many sculptures and installations are to be seen along the differing walking routes. Such as, Moore, Hepworth Heaney, Hirst, Goldworthy, and Edwin Wurm amongst others. Plenty of wildlife, Herons, Egrets, Geese and Swans, rabbits, squirrels and hares and if lucky fox, deer cuckoo and kingfisher. Dogs are welcome as are owners who keep their mutts on the lead as the sculpture park has sheep and ground nesting birds.

I had a lovely piece of Parkin and a filter coffee in the main restaurant.

Recommended as a great day out whatever the weather.

Thank you taking the time to write a comment. YSP is an independent charitable trust and registered museum that relies on ticket sales as an essential income stream to support its work. Committed to affordability and value for money, there are multiple types of tickets available including an Open Concession and free entry for 25s and under. YSP receives a small amount of funding from Wakefield Council and, whilst YSP is grateful for this funding, it equates to less than 1% of our overall turnover. This year, we have opened two new exhibitions in The Weston Gallery (which is free to enter), new exhibitions in the Underground Gallery, Visitor Centre and the Chapel, as well as the installation of several new outdoor sculptures. Everyone who buys a ticket to YSP is supporting the work we do. With best wishes, YSP Team.

Whilst we enjoyed the park and sculptures in the rain, the eating experience was poor to say the least. As we entered the "The Kitchen" at about 13.00hr for lunch we found that they had run out some items on the menu, having purchasing our food we found out that there was nowhere to sit. The seating area was full of students most had obviously finished their meals and were just sitting about chatting, using mobiles oblivious to the fact that other people would like to sit down and eat. Couldn't the YPS staff have approached the student's teachers regarding asking students to vacate tables when they had finished eating. Whilst I appreciate that the student were at YSP to learn about art however, wouldn't it be a good idea when when people prebook they are told that on that day there will be 5 or 6 coaches of students that day. Alternatively if YSP know there are so many students arriving all at once that they would provide separate arrangements for large group eating. So if you are booking or planning a trip I would advise you ask if they expecting a large influx of buses that day, or as I shall do for any future visits bring my own food to avoid disappointment .

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We’re sorry to hear that your experience at YSP wasn’t as you had anticipated. Where possible, we look to offer alternate areas for students and large groups to have lunch that they bring with them, but where groups choose to purchase food onsite, they are treated as equal to that of a general visitor. We only move on those visitors that are sat in The Kitchen Café if they have not purchased our food and drink. 13:00 can often be a time when we are at our busiest, so it may have been that when you arrived, we were in the process of replenishing menu items. We rarely run out of items so early in the food service and if this does happen, we endeavour to offer an alternative. If you are looking for an alternate dining offer onsite, might we suggest The Weston. This is a table service restaurant where very few students dine. You can book these tables in advance so you can guarantee a space. Although we appreciate that to be able to know ahead of time how many students or groups we have in on a day, this isn’t something that is possible to communicate to all visitors ahead of their visit. If this is information that you would like to be aware of before visiting us, please call the information desk on 01924 832631. They will be able to inform you of how many students and groups are scheduled in for that day. With best wishes, YSP Team.

We last came to YSP before the admission price changes. You used to pay depending on how long you stayed in the car park - not per person. So it made sense to have a quick look round and come back another day. Under the new tariffs, £9 per full paying person is a bit steep if you are local and only stay for an hour or so. But if you are under 25 or have children - all of which are free it’s not so bad. Or if you stay for the whole day - complete bargain. (There is enough there to spend the whole day!)

The park itself is wonderful. A really diverse range of sculptures which surely must appeal to everyone at some point! The park is very well looked after. Improved car parking and paths since we last visited. Could have done with better signage for the long gallery (keep left on entering the field) and advanced notification that it was closed!!

It’s a huge park so be prepared for a long walk! Make the most of it and enjoy!

With world class artists on display such as Daniel Arasham, Ai Weiwei, Henry Moore and Damien Hirst, it’s amazing how anyone can complain at the price of £9! Imagine the insurance cost to display millions of pounds of art. Even better, the price included parking. The park also proves disabled carer free entry.

We are so lucky to have the amazing asset celebrating culture in Yorkshire!! It’s a brilliant day out and helps burn a few calories too!

What an amazing place! I have been looking at going back to YSP for quite some time as I last came maybe 10 years ago and couldn’t remember much at all, I chose a good day for it as it was nice and quiet and the weather was fair. Be prepared for a LOT of walking and a lot of it is also quite uphill, but well worth it!
I was in the park for a little over 4 hours and still didn’t see everything or even visit the galleries, so will absolutely be coming back. You probably could get round it faster but I like to read all of the information boards (which there were plenty and so interesting)!
I went, mainly to visit Daniel Arsham’s exhibition before it closes and I am so glad I did, as well as finding so many more artists who had some incredible work.
Really well curated and an enjoyable day out (free for under 25s so thankfully all I had to pay for was travel which is even better!) I will absolutely be returning in future

I took my daughter to see the sculpture park because I did my degree at Bretton Hall. While the setting is as lovely as ever, the sight of the old college buildings sitting unloved and apparently abandoned in spite of renovation plans is rather depressing. Even more depressing was being charged for my daughter in spite of the fact she’s under 25, a student and disabled. When I tried to query this at the information desk, there was a lot of shoulder shrugging. To top it all off, half the exhibits were shut as it was a Monday although there was nothing to warn us of this. I remember there being far more sculptures when I was a student there. I know it’s a charity etc etc but I left feeling thoroughly ripped off.

Thank you for your feedback and it’s disappointing to hear that your day wasn’t as anticipated. We think your review is from a visit in June this year. Our current Underground Gallery exhibition opened on 10th June and so if you visited just before this, this gallery would have been closed whilst we installed the many sculptures. There was lots of activity to watch outside the gallery during this time as large sculptures were delicately craned into position. The Chapel was open during this time is open on a Monday. All exhibition dates are listed on our website to help visitors plan their day, along with opening times of The Weston (Tuesday – Sunday and Bank Holidays). We currently have over 100 sculptures displayed outside across the landscape and our friendly Information Desk team, located in the Visitor Centre, can give lots of advice on where to go and what to see. Regarding your entry ticket, please email galleryteam@ysp.org.uk with your record of purchase and we will organise a refund for you. YSP does not own Bretton Hall and the former college buildings but will forward your feedback on. With best wishes, YSP Team.

This is a wonderful place to visit but be prepared for some serious walking if you want to see everything. Unfortunately/fortunately the day we had booked for our visit was one of the hottest September days ever recorded. We had a sandwich/drink in the cafe and then explored outside. We had to come back a long way to get an ice cream and drink to keep us going, perhaps you should site some refreshments around the site. On our return we visited the galleries and had some fun posing with the exhibits. We really enjoyed our visit and hope to return in the future.
