Yorkshire Sculpture Park is the 2014 Museum of The Year, housing what is probably this country’s finest sculpture collection in the stunningly beautiful surroundings of the Bretton Hall Estate. Delegates registering on arrival at reception are exempt from parking charges – which makes this a great way to combine the AGM and/or debate with a ‘free’ visit to the Park.
