Yorkshire Sculpture Park is the jewel in West Yorkshire's crown. With constantly changing exhibitions, anchored by the permanent installations from such greats as Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworh, there is something here for everyone. The park is set in some 500 acres of the classical landscape of Bretton Hall (now sadly disused) and also in the purpose-built galleries. Family and dog-friendly and with a great cafe/restaurant this is a place to go for a full day out.
The park has recently introduced a series of guided 'Wild' walks around the grounds to introduce visitors to the terrific variety of wildlife that is resident. These guided walks are free, and you could expect to see a large variety of flora and fauna, including the park's resident Herons who have a large Heronry on the lower of the two lakes.
With no charge for entry (only for car parking), and with a multitude of events throughout the year, this is a venue to visit again and again.
