A bright airy art gallery with windows planned to show the best of the surrounding area. The views of the river, weir and gardens are beautiful. The current display of south American wool art is eye catching.there was a print fair today which was very interesting. The usual exhibits are varied and well explained. A calm atmosphere is just right to appreciate the displays. Wheelchair friendly, excellent toilet facilities, .very good cafe with freshly prepared food from a healthy menu. Staff very pleasant, online booking easy. Lovely garden for walking round or sitting in.

A really great experience all round. We travelled from Herefordshire to visit. Blown away by the architecture, inside out. Wonderful exhibition spaces with great light, space and captured views. Fabulous exhibits to inspire, great garden's beautifully planted. Fabulous friendly staff. Great cafe with delicious food. Absolutely brilliant, a iced gem on the fabulous cake that is Yorkshire!

Huge gallery full of glorious beauty. The Hepworth is stunning, and the collection includes many fascinating pieces giving insight into her development and practice. When I visited there was a superb Sheila Hicks exhibition also. The scale of it was nearly overwhelming. I had to sit down and catch my breath many times.

Award winning art gallery with some excellent sculpture. Cafe is usually very busy though. The Sheila Hicks textile exhibition is outstanding. Cafe quieter than usual as we visited after 2pm.

Loved it. Someone one had a light bulb moment, providing paper, clipboard and pencils And especially the stencil to give the confidence to get started. We had SUCH a happy day. It was my birthday. Started with coffee and delicious cakes. Galleries so accessible, info, layout, drawers to explore. We loved the sculptures and observing how they had been created. Well done.
