Incredible. Sculpture park in the countryside. So many Henry Moore sculptures. We loved walking from sculpture to sculpture, the scenery, the landscaping. Everything about this place is thumbs up.

Nice place to visit with friends. Definitely, recommend to picnic on sunny days. This park is quite huge so maybe need the whole to visit all the attractions. Car parking fee is £10 for whole day.

£10 to park, expensive cafes, very little for kids to do and an army of staff/volunteers waiting to tell you not to do things. Maybe we're not the target audience......

The artwork is always fascinating, but the surroundings are the best in the Wakefield area. I do hope this new hotel complex will not spoil it.

Anywhere you can see great art and enjoy the countryside at the same time gets my vote! Go on a nice day, take your walking shoes and you won't be disappointed!

Yes, it costs £10 to park you car for the day. With a car of four or five people, that's less than £3 each. If you have a problem with that, don't come or park outside and walk in. We were happy to support this...More

Yes the park has trails and paths all around. Getting close to some of the sculptures maybe difficult when further onto the grass. There are lifts in the main building and disabled parking near the entrance. Bill
