We are meeting: London Kings Cross Mainline Station
Our first day trip in 2013. Nice walk in an arty-farty open air museum/park.
500 acres of fields, hills, woodland, lakes and formal gardens combine to create a beautiful landscape and stunning setting for Yorkshire Sculpture Park. This landscape is not entirely natural. In fact it has been altered a lot in the last few hundred years, mainly for the families that have lived here since the land was listed as 'waste' in the Domesday Book.
"Probably the finest exhibition site for sculpture in the world." Bill Packer, Financial Times
"In my experience, you get things from visiting these 500 acres of rolling rural north that are rarely available at other art locations." Waldemar Januszczak, The Sunday Times
"A great way to combine culture, exercise and fresh air for all the family." The People
