As the birthplace of two of England’s most important modern sculptors, Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, the northern county of Yorkshire has a unique arts heritage to explore. The Yorkshire Sculpture Triangle encompasses four leading cultural venues: Yorkshire Sculpture Park in West Bretton, The Hepworth art gallery in Wakefield, and the Henry Moore Institute and Leeds Art Gallery in Leeds. They’re a 30 minute drive, bus or train ride from each other, so you can enjoy an afternoon, day or weekend exploring all four.

Start at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, with over 100 sculptures spread across 500 acres of green parkland. The Hepworth is 7.5 miles (12km) north of here and celebrates the work of Barbara Hepworth in the city where she was born.

Lastly, head to Leeds Art Gallery to discover one of the best collections of 20th century art outside London, before visiting the Henry Moore Institution next door.
