this is the usual modern art crap. Sculptures that are meaningless but you are supposed to interpret according to your whim. At least it's cheap and the garden is nice to rest in.

Bought entry on double ticket with Tate. Good value for money. The sculptures on display are magnificent, especially the large ones in the garden. Set among mature trees a very good way to spend an hour or so.

Interesting life of a very clever woman. Sculptures are interesting, and her workshop is layed out for all to see. Small museum, nice staff. Nice, unusual, but small garden. Bit pricey.

It was interesting to see the progress of the artist's work over many years and her influence on other people. The sculpture garden is fascinating to walk round if the weather is conducive.

This is an amazing garden, thoroughly worth a visit. Hepworth's sculptures are strategically placed to enjoy their beauty from different angles and to peer into her studio is inspirational.

A good presentation of Barbara Hepworth and her works. There was a terrific presentation by one of the Tate staff that bought her personality to life. The garden was particularly enjoyable to wander round.

We decided to combine our visit to the Tate Modern St Ives with a visit to Barbara Hepworths Garden. What a lovely setting the garden has many of her works displayed in the garden and also you can see the workshop where she worked with...More
