On 14 February, watch the setting sun in the tranquil Skyspace at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Created by American artist James Turrell, the Skyspace consists of a large square chamber with an aperture cut into the roof of the Park's 18th-century Grade II Listed Deer Shelter. Through this aperture the visitor is offered a heightened vision of the sky in a place of contemplation and revelation, harnessing the changing light of the Yorkshire sky.

Follow this extraordinary experience with a delicious, three-course evening meal dinner in the YSP restaurant.

Price includes parking, three-course evening meal and drink on arrival.
