Yorkshire Sculpture Park's Visitor Centre and entrance is a landmark building, designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley Architects that offers greatly improved visitor facilities in a vibrant and contemporary setting.
Alongside the restaurant and shop are a Community Resource area, auditorium and conference space. An outdoor workshop site and an indoor classroom are also available for visiting schools and groups.
Why not take a look at the "Walk Of Art" as you approach the Visitor Centre from the car park area. 'Walk of Art' is a 100 metre metal pathway designed and inscribed with the names of individuals, clubs, groups, companies and schools. You cant fail to miss the thousands of names (some more famous than others!) beneath your feet in this permanent work of art by sculptor Gordon Young, in collaboration with "why not associates". Can you spot the name of a famous Yorkshire born chat show host? Good Luck with your search!
