Family Visits

Awaken your senses in nature, while exploring woods, lakes and beautiful green spaces. Build curiosity and wonder while seeking out thought-provoking sculptures. Nourish your family in mind, soul and body while creating memories together.


YSP is fantastic for the whole family.

Our family events programme has something for children of all ages to take part in. Join in with family events to think, make and play.


Pick up free activities in the indoor galleries and have a go at activities in the Project Space in our Underground Gallery. We also have lots of exciting resources for you to explore on your visit to YSP.
