Lace up your boots at get ready to step through time and discover the creation of Bretton Lakes at Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s lakes. This full afternoon features a guided 3 mile/5km walk exploring the complete history of the creation of the lakes that still can be enjoyed today at YSP. Sneak a rare glimpse into the pump house and hear tales of Sir Thomas Wentworth’s boat, the Aurora.

No summer walk is complete without a picnic so once complete, sit back, and enjoy a lake view with a freshly made sandwich and slice of cake. Picnic bag included in the ticket price.

Dress for the weather – hopefully sunglasses and hats! Sturdy and comfortable footwear required for a full afternoon of walking and exploring.
