A trip to The Hepworth Gallery

We recently paid a visit to The Hepworth in Wakefield. We've been before when Seb was tiny but decided now he is getting bigger we should take him again. As my parents live in walking distance from the gallery you would think i would have been more often!

We went midweek which meant the gallery was pretty quiet, perfect for toddler exploring. 
Seb was in awe of the huge sculptures on display and was asking what they were all called.
When asked he told me his favourite was the one below and he also loved the huge windows looking out on the River Calder.
 My personal favourite was the Mother and Child figure, it's very simple but sweet.

 Outside the gallery is a fab play area and also because the gallery is on the river you can see the boatyard.

If you have a morning or afternoon spare and are nearby, it's well worth a visit.
