Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Yorkshire Sculpture Park is a pioneering place that aims to challenge, inspire, inform and delight, welcoming over 300,000 visitors, including 40,000 learning visits each year.

500 acres of fields, hills, woodland, lakes and formal gardens combine to create a beautiful landscape and stunning setting for Yorkshire Sculpture Park.


This landscape is not entirely natural. In fact it has been altered a lot in the last few hundred years, mainly for the families that have lived here since the land was listed as ‘waste’ in the Domesday Book.

YSP recently commissioned an Historic Landscape Management Plan setting out a 10 year programme to restore the 500 acre estate.
