1. Yorkshire Sculpture Park, West Yorkshire
The UK’s oldest sculpture park celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2017 and usually has around 100 sculptures to discover across its massive site, near Wakefield in West Yorkshire. The permanent exhibition includes works by local modernist sculptors Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth alongside visiting installations by renowned figures including Damien Hirst and Ai Weiwei.
There are also six indoor galleries dotted around the park, including the RIBA Award-nominated Weston building. Opened in 2019, this structure also features a shop and a fab restaurant serving a seasonal menu including dishes made with fruit from the park’s historic fruit trees. At a whopping 500 acres, it’d take you days to uncover everything YSP has to offer.
