  • Fantastic day out for the whole family and dogs. Spacious, beautiful fields, hills, pathways, woodlands, meadows. Sculptures very interesting and it's so exciting to walk and almost Hunt to discover another one. Cafes, shops, galleries, toilets on side. Staff extremely helpful. Entrance £6 parking included. Stunning views. Highly recommended attraction, very close from M1.
  • Brilliant, best experienced on a nice sunny day like we had today. If you want to experience the whole park you will need to spend the whole day and walk some considerable distance. I was there for over 3 hours and felt like I had only scratched the surface. Be aware that you have to buy your tickets beforehand but having said that we bought ours 1.5 miles from the park.
  • We spent a lovely morning in the sunshine today walking around the park, galleries and the shops. Finished off with a nice coffee at the Weston where our car was parked. Excellent value for money. Spent £6.00 each which was well worth it for a morning. You could easily spend all day here and bring a picnic. We'll be back soon.
  • What a great day out! It's a big site with fields containing sculptures and sheep 🐑 and a big lake surrounded by woodlands and more sculptures. Perfect place for walking the dog 🐕. It has a visitor centre with some good art, a gift shop and a cafe upstairs which has fabulous views of the park. The cafe does cater for vegans.
  • An absolutely amazing location to visit. As the wild life nonchalantly wanders around ignoring the sculptures you can marvel at the inspiring art on display. The temporary displays are always worth exploring too. You might even be lucky to see some truly wild creatures as you explore the landscape. Definitely a place to return to!
