About

Yorkshire Sculpture Park is a leading international centre for modern and contemporary sculpture. It is an independent charitable trust and registered museum situated in the 500-acre, 18th-century Bretton Hall estate in West Yorkshire.


Founded in 1977 by Executive Director Peter Murray, Yokshire Sculpture Park was the first sculpture park in the UK, and is the largest of its kind in Europe, providing the only place in the world to see Barbara Hepworth’s The Family of Man in its entirety, alongside a significant collection of sculpture, including bronzes by Henry Moore, and site-specific works by Andy Goldsworthy, David Nash and James Turrell.


Yorkshire Sculpture Park also mounts a world-class, year-round temporary exhibitions programme including some of the world’s leading artists across five indoor galleries and the open air. Recent highlights include exhibitions by KAWS, Bill Viola, Anthony Caro, Fiona Banner, Ai Weiwei, Yinka Shonibare MBE, Joan Miró and Jaume Plensa.


All visitors need to pre-book to enter YSP, whether you come by car, bike or on foot. Bring your ticket and keep it with you during your visit, either on a phone or printed. All tickets include parking.
