Get outdoors and embrace the arrival of spring with a trip to one of the UK’s most unique art galleries, where you’ll be able to spend a day discovering iconic work by world-renowned artists including Antony Gormley, Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore – all out in the open air.

Set across 500 acres in the 18th-century Bretton Estate in West Bretton (one mile from junction 38 on the M1), Yorkshire Sculpture Park has become a leading international centre for modern and contemporary sculpture. And after almost half a century leading the way for modern and contemporary sculpture, this year the park celebrates its 40th birthday.

Throughout 2017 the gallery will host a jam-packed programme of exhibitions and events, while the birthday celebrations get underway with the biggest UK exhibition to date by leading sculptor Tony Cragg, alongside [Re]construct, an exhibition curated from the Arts Council Collection in the 18th-century chapel.

As always, entry is free – you’ll only have to pay to park the car.

Yorkshire Sculpture Park, West Bretton, Wakefield, open 10am-5pm
