Yorkshire Sculpture Park Voted Yorkshire’s Most Magnificent Attraction

After weeks of public voting, Yorkshire Sculpture Park (YSP) has been named Yorkshire’s ‘Most Magnificent Attraction’, beating over 100 other popular Yorkshire venues to this prestigious accolade.

Situated in 500 acres of an open rural space just off Junction 38 on the A1 near Wakefield, YSP is home to permanent collections and temporary exhibitions of world class sculpture, and welcomes over 300,000 visitors every year. YSP prides itself on providing ‘Great art for everyone’, enabling access, understanding and enjoyment of art and landscape for everyone, whilst dismantling many of the barriers that often exist between the public and contemporary art.

Over 4,000 people voted for their favourite Yorkshire venue at, with YSP beating Yorkshire Wildlife Park into second place, followed – in order – by the National Media Museum (NMM), The Deep and Newby Hall and Gardens. All of the top 5 venues are members of the Yorkshire Attractions Group, and overall voting was dominated by the 21 venues that make up the membership of that group.
