Recently I went to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) with my family and some friends. The weather was perfect for walking around the park as it was dry and there was no wind. First we went to the restaurant, you order at the counter and then they bring you your food once it is made. Unfortunately my friends lunch came... More

On saturday I asked my littlest one what he'd like to see. He said "Statues." I googled to see if there were any good statues in places nearer us.. but I couldnt find anything good. Then I remembered the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. We had previously been 5ish years ago, before the littlest one was born. So we thought we'd go... More

Ground conditions are not good at this time of year - around the the red carpark and onto what is shown as the Lower Park on the map were a quagmire and unsuitable for buggies or wheelchairs. I don't think the mud was helped by the demolition work going on with the 1960s style blocks in that area (good riddance).... More

Today was a great day parking seems excessive at £8 but none the less it's was a very nice walk around the lake. We had a pushchair with small wheels and still managed to walk all the long way around the lake using both pathways and tracks. It's well sign posted walking around too. We also has a breakfast of...

Love this place lots of nice areas to walk and sit if the weather is nice. The sculptures are a good talking point, even if you don't appreciate art as such. Good for the family and dogs. There's a nice cafe for snacks and drinks with outdoor seating. All well maintained.

Visited with my 7 year old son for a day out. Beautiful countryside with interesting heritage and culture mixed together. We took a picnic which we ate by late, accompanied by some very friendly and curious ducks. I am no art critic or expert but I found the sculptures a pleasure to be around and they added a different dimension... More

When on a birthday brunch gift, although work was been carried out in preparation for Summer the site had many attractions to make our visit worthwhile, large sculptures were on display around the site and a interesting display of email art. This is and display of art from countries that people can't leave but emails can. Well worth a visit.

It was our first visit to YSP on a wet weekend in January, but we thought it was great. Great place for a nice long walk, or short one, and we can't wait to go back, especially in the summer months with a picnic.

A great walking experience, took the dogs round the Lake then enjoyed the statuary and sculptures, some were not to my taste but undoubtedly a good afternoon out.

Yorkshire Sculpture park is one of my most visited outdoor activities as it as easy access from major roads and the M1 motorway, I walk the park grounds at least once a week so I see the changing seasons unfold, and now still in winter it's still a delightful place even with many of its trees waiting to come into...
