Fodor's Expert Review Hepworth Wakefield

Leeds Museum/Gallery
Free Fodor's Choice

The largest purpose-built gallery in the United Kingdom (outside London) focuses on 20th-century British art, notably sculptors Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, with important works by both. The unique design of slightly skewed concrete building blocks by architect David Chipperfield is combined with the powerful permanent collection and rolling exhibitions devoted to contemporary artists in the Calder gallery. It's in the down-to-earth West Yorkshire town of Wakefield, 12 miles south of Leeds off M1.
