Trip Report Yorkshire Sculpture Garden and National Coal Mining Museum (Wakefield)

Jump to last reply

Looking for something to do between York and London? We had a nice day out combining the National Coal Mining Museum and the Yorkshire Sculpture Garden. Both are off the M1 at junction 38 near Wakefield.

As you can see from the blog, we are no art critics but it was still a great day out. Try to dial in the weather we had today if you can. Perfect!

A touch farther south near Sheffield is also the Magna Science Adventure Centre set in a former steel works. That's a good option for families on a rainy day. That outing was on a separate day (the raining week prior actually).

The blog isn't written for this audience per se, but hopefully you'll still enjoy it.
