Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Yorkshire Sculpture Park
YSP welcomes families and aims to be as family-friendly as possible. In the open air, children are free to run around, making the most of 500 acres of historic parkland. 
With 60 works in the open air, there are many hidden treasures to hunt for, and unlike traditional galleries, at YSP you can touch the sculptures. Family favourites in the Park include Playground by artist collective Greyworld, a musical sculpture that children will love to step across, and Crawling by Sophie Ryder, a half woman, half hare made from domestic items and plastic toys.
Families will also enjoy walks in the newly restored lakes and woodland where they'll discover bridges, follies and incredible historical features including a Greek-style summer house, a now land-locked Boat House, an Obelisk, Stepping Stones and a magical Shell Grotto.

Baby changing at YSP Centre, YSP Learning and the Bothy Gallery
