You are able to enjoy sculpture in the open air, rather than in a stuffy gallery. no entrance fee. small parking fee is valid all day.
It's miles away from where i live (north-east scotland.) i guess it wouldnt be such a good idea to go there if it rains :)
The Yorkshire sculpture park is an open air sculpture park - a nice change from the usual galleries - although some of the exhibits may not be to your liking, it is a nice experience all the same. there are picnic spots and shops selling souvenirs and refreshments. a section of the park is dedicated to henry moore - the sculpture's there are superb, but there are hundreds of sheep and goats roaming around. my girlfriend preferred the "cleaner" part of the park, where she was not in danger of getting sheep droppings stuck under her shoes, but i think that seeing an henry moore sculpture is worth navigating your way through a sheep field, for.
