Henry Moore Studios & Gardens, Hertfordshire

Henry Moore Studios & Gardens

At Henry Moore Studios & Gardens in Hertfordshire we are working towards offering lifelong learning opportunities and opening up access routes to engage with the art, life and creative processes of Henry Moore, his extensive collection, influences, home and studios.

This activity is reflective of the artist’s intention to encourage public appreciation of the visual arts, as well as being developed in consideration of our ever-changing society, contemporary practice and the role of art in the public realm.

Educational Groups

Engage your students and enhance key curriculum areas with one of our educational group visits. We offer guided tours of the sculpture gardens and studios free of charge, to school, college and university groups from Year 3 upwards.

For 2022 we have developed a new 45 minute interactive tour in consultation with educators and look forward to holding our first on site CPD event for educators this summer.

Group visits

Independent groups of 10 or more are welcomed to spend the afternoon with one of our friendly, knowledgeable guides and hear Henry Moore's remarkable story while surrounded by over 20 of his iconic sculptures. Discover his creative journey in his fascinating studios, where the origins of his monumental bronzes are evident in the hundreds of small models (maquettes) that line the shelves and visit the 16th century Aisled Barn which is the only place in the world where you can see Moore's remarkable tapestries.

Relaxed Visits

During 2022 we will be piloting a series of relaxed visits on the last Tuesday of the month, for groups with additional access needs. These aim to offer space to explore the grounds outside of public opening hours in a supported environment, along with guides with SEN experience.

Our open green spaces and the tactility of the sculptures provide a variety of opportunities to support sensory, neurological and physical needs, we welcome you to get in touch to see how we can best support your group.
