1. Leeds Sculpture Park
My Sister, Grandad and I visited Leeds Sculpture Park. My Grandfather used to be a landscape architect so is very kean on visiting gardens. However, he is gradually getting on now (he is now 89) so it is harder for him to get around without a car. Every time my sister is down we make the effort to drive to these gardens which he is always desperate to look at.
I really loved Yorkshire Sculpture park, the architecture there is beautiful, and the park is HUGE. We attempted to walk around it but we must have covered only a tiny fraction! I would recommend people to go there, it’s about twenty minutes from the city and their is a bus going to and from. It is very peaceful and calm, and fun to explore the acres and acres.
2. Biddulph Grange Gardens
We also went to Biddulph Grange Gardens, created by James Bateman for his collection of plants from around the world. The gardens were fabulous, taking you on a journey from Italy to the pyramids of Egypt, a Victorian vision of China, and a re-creation of a Himalayan glen.
