YSP Summer of Fun

"What's more summery than a sculpture park? The rolling green hills and indoor galleries of YSP make for a lively day out."

- Jonathan Jones, The Guardian

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to YSP this summer holiday, to spend time with friends and family soaking up art and nature, and making lasting memories together. Voted Yorkshire’s Tourist Attraction of the Year, every time you visit YSP you’ll be sure to discover something new.

Explore exhibitions by exceptional women artists in our indoor galleries. Visit the Imagination Station in the Underground Gallery to enjoy drawing, making and chatting together, using playful Activity Baskets inspired by the themes and artworks in Bharti Kher: Alchemies and pick up our family resources to discover new exhibitions by Leilah Babirye and Elisabeth Frink.

Outdoors, come rain come shine, discover Little Wild Wood – our natural creative play space, designed to inspire imaginations – somewhere for kids to connect to nature and sculpture at their level.

There are a variety of free, drop-in activities taking place throughout the summer holiday to keep kids occupied and engaged. Join us on Tuesdays for imaginative Outdoor Sculpture Building, visit the magical Hidden Forest for playful guided activities on Fridays, and get creative with all the family on Artful Saturdays. A new adventure awaits every time so be sure to join us again and again.

Pick up our Sculpture Spy trail to seek out artworks in the landscape together while getting your steps in, and discover our new Myths and Magic trail.

Recharge after all that exploring with a tasty lunch in our cafés, with a family friendly menu available daily, grab an ice cream to cool down (with dog-friendly versions available too!) or enjoy a picnic in the Park on sunny days. The Weston is open daily during the school holidays.

Kids always go FREE and parking is FREE too.

Adults can join in the fun too with a Summer Visitor Pass, from just £40 for unlimited visits this season.
