The Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) is an enormous 500-acre open air gallery that truly highlights the beautiful relationship between art and nature.
Where better to explore stunning English countryside and discover monumental sculpture than at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Whether you’re a Henry Moore fan or enjoy whiling away your time in a James Turell contemplative light installation, YSP is the ideal location for an art day trip. As these photographs reveal, who needs white-walled galleries when you have such verdant landscape.
