– Sculpture Park
The Yorkshire Sculpture Triangle is a collection of 200 of the world’s greatest artists presented across 4 leading venues in three fantastic Yorkshire destinations – Leeds, Wakefield and West Bretton. All venues are within 20 miles of each other and are easily accessible from Holdsworth House.
We love the awe-inspiring Yorkshire Sculpture Park just off Junction 39 of the M1. It is a recognised international centre for modern and contemporary art and covers 500 acres of stunning countryside.
Explore open-air displays by some of the world’s finest artists including Henry Moore and enjoy fascinating exhibitions throughout four stunning galleries.
There are plenty of events going on and the park is perfect for dog walking and picnics. Your trip from Holdsworth House Hotel will take around 40 minutes. There’s plenty of parking there (daily charge applies).
The Hepworth Gallery at Wakefield is Yorkshire’s newest art gallery, celebrating the area’s unique artistic legacy and exploring the work of major contemporary artists. Designed by David Chipperfield Architects, our ten superb gallery spaces make this one of the UK’s largest purpose-built galleries outside London. Described by The Independent as “One of the finest contemporary art museums in Europe” The Hepworth Gallery has over 1,600 square metres of light-filled gallery spaces and brings together work from Wakefield’s art collection, exhibitions by contemporary artists and rarely seen works by Barbara Hepworth.
The Henry Moore Institute on The Headrow in Leeds is a world-recognised centre for the study of sculpture. It hosts a year-round programme of exhibitions, conferences and lectures and is a part of The Henry Moore Foundation, which was set up by Moore in 1977 to encourage appreciation of the visual arts, especially sculpture.
Leeds Art Gallery has been described as ‘Probably the best collection of twentieth century British art outside London’ (John Russell Taylor, The Times). It is a lively gallery on The Headrow in Leeds’ Cultural Quarter. Offering stunning collections as well as a dynamic programme of changing exhibitions, at Leeds Art Gallery you can see a rich variety of art on display including nationally acclaimed artworks of Henry Moore, Barbara Hepworth, Atkinson Grimshaw, Jacob Kramer, as well as work by a range of contemporary artists including Paula Rego, Bridget Riley, Georgina Starr, Tony Cragg, Antony Gormley, Francis Bacon.
