It’s that time of year where we start thinking about places we can adventure to – those that aren’t too far away but that make us feel like we’ve travelled further than we have because they offer a sense of escapism. In Yorkshire we have plenty of places we can travel to without too much other – both on public transport and by car and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park is a highlight for many.
Playing its part in the creation of the Yorkshire Sculpture Triangle, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park offers the opportunity to see internationally acclaimed sculptures in a scenic location for free.
Formerly the site of Bretton Hall, a campus known for cultivating some of the best acting talent/performers, the Sculpture Park now inspires creativity in another way and reminds us of some of the great sculptors to come from the region; Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth.
Here’s a peek at what’s currently on display at Yorkshire Sculpture Park:
If you’re without a car (like me), the Sculpture Park is a short bus ride from Wakefield Bus Station though buses are infrequent so do check times before you start your journey. If you’re travelling on multiple buses with different providers, it’s cheaper to get a West Yorkshire Metro DayRover (I had to travel with First, Arriva and another bus company to get there).
