Spent the day here, took a picnic, so just had to pay for parking, which at £8, for a day, is comparable to many city centre car parks, and clearly goes a long way to funding the parks upkeep. It is unique as far as I know, the sheep and animals add to its quirkiness, its a great way of making art accessible and beautifully displayed

Allocate at least half a day to look round this brilliant place. Extensive grounds to explore. Great for kids too. Take a picnic, plenty of places to eat it.

Used to live close to the Sculpture Park but moved away over 20 years ago. We were regular visitors and always enjoyed the experience.

Revisited after many years and how it has changed with visitor centre and gallery space.
Lost the informality of old but without doubt it is now a world class exhibition facility and what is more, with the exception of a reasonable parking charge, it is free!
Thoroughly enjoyed the ongoing exhibitions and the permanent collection all displayed in a combination of parkland and semi-formal garden. A great way to spend a sunny afternoon.

Shame the adjacent former teaches training college is now closed and looking sorry for itself in parts but this does not detract from the experience.

2nd time we have been here, not a lot has changed in the years, car parking charges aside !

Lots to see and mass's of open parkland to wonder around, personally i don't get the sculptures but that's just my opinion on modern art. The grounds themselves and the facilities make up though.

There's 2 cafes and a shop, toilets etc, car parking is a bit "messy" when full like today and can take a while to find a space.

Parking charge of course, which is much debated is £2.50 for 1 hour, £5 for 1-2 hours, £8 for 2+
Odd system but consider it it an entry free and you'll feel better.

YSP has won the Art Fund Museum of the year for 2014...but having visited one can only assume that the assessment criteria are not focused on the visitor experience.

The art is impressive and the spaces really quite stunning, however grumpy staff, issues with accessibility and unclear labelling in the restaurant are just a few quibbles which made this visit very disappointing.
