Both me and my sister had different favourite pieces and were drawn to certain artists, so it was really interesting to see which sculptures we liked and which we didn't. But even if we weren't fans of individual sculptures or collections, it isn't hard to appreciate the work that have gone into everything.
The bus also didn't drop us off at the park and we had no idea how to get there. Luckily, the lovely of people of Yorkshire stepped up again, as a local woman walked us part way and then explained where we had to go from there so finding the park was simple.
First up was the Kaws Sculptures, which were my favourite and are a temporary addition to the park. I love the whole idea behind them, which was to create figures that take inspiration from old wooden toys. While the sculptures don't really have faces, you really want to comfort them despite the fact that they are huge.
We ended our visit with a cup of coffee in the upstairs cafe - it is a little bit on the pricey side so I'm glad we didn't buy lunch there but everything was really nice - which meant we could rest our feet - they were a bit sore after so much walking - and make the most of the view. Not only could we see several sculptures from afar, we got to make the most of the stunning countryside.
If you're planning on going to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, it is a good idea to check the weather as it means a lot of walking over fields that will easily become muddy. However, it is a real must-see and I can't wait to go back for another explore and to see what we missed.
