Henry Moore Studios & Gardens

Henry Moore Studios & Gardens is the work-place and family home of 20th century sculptor Henry Moore: with over 70 acres of sculpture gardens and rolling fields. Each year our sculpture gardens display over 20 of Moore's world-famous, monumental sculptures; showcasing his work as he intended, against the landscape he shaped.

 

Six different studio spaces reveal Moore's creative process, including his maquette, carving, etching and drawing studios, while the 16th century Aisled Barn is the only place in the world to see his unique tapestries. The family’s home, Hoglands, houses Moore’s own art collection and the curiosities that often inspired his sculpture. 

Your visit in 2022 includes entry to special exhibition Henry Moore: The Sixties which presents a fascinating insight into Moore's life and work during a pivotal decade of his career, through 30 sculptures and over 20 drawings and graphics.

Please note, while we welcome all badged assistance dogs, pet dogs are not permitted in the sculpture gardens and may not be left in vehicles in our car parks.
