Admire sculptures under blue skies in Dorchester

Dorchester, Dorset

Get up close to beautiful works of art while exploring the glorious Dorset countryside at Sculpture by the Lakes.

See an impressive range of dramatic outdoor sculptures set in beautiful gardens, hailed as a modern arcadia.

Sculpture by the Lakes, a 26 acre sculpture park created by renowned sculptor Simon Gudgeon, is an oasis for art lovers and collectors alike. Simon has carefully landscaped and curated the park to ensure each piece is positioned to enhance its aesthetic qualities. The result is a wonderfully peaceful and sensuous experience where visitors feel free from the constraints of enclosed spaces of a traditional gallery.

This award-winning attraction should not be missed off any culture lover’s itinerary.
