Sunrise in the Skyspace

More Information

Created by American artist James Turrell, Deer Shelter Skyspace consists of a large square chamber with an aperture cut into the roof of the Park's 18th-century Deer Shelter. As the sun rises, you'll experience a heightened vision of the sky in a place of contemplation and revelation, harnessing the changing light of the Yorkshire sky. The sunrise is followed by breakfast and fresh coffee in YSP Restaurant.

Please meet at YSP Centre entrance. Guests are required to arrive 15 minutes prior to the event. Latecomers will be admitted at the discretion of the YSP staff.
