If you’ve not visited the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, near Wakefield, I highly recommend it. It’s set in 500 acres of the grounds of the 18th Century Bretton Hall, which is now part of the University of Leeds.

YSP was established in 1977 and now boasts a number of galleries and a large visitors centre. Amongst the fields, valley’s and trees you’ll discover permanent sculptures from artists such as Henry Moore and Barbera Hepworth.

The galleries and outside spaces host temporary exhibitions, with Jaume Plensa exhibiting on the day we visited. We enjoyed our day, our daughter loved running around the open spaces, scrambling among the trees and bushes and appreciating the sculptures. She wanted to see the ‘man’ by Plensa that was advertised on the visitor map.

We also enjoyed lunch at the cafe which was fresh, local and tasty! A few pics of the day below and as always, on Flickr
