Testimonials from visiting groups
“Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day on Saturday. The new Visitor Centre and Exhibition are a great addition. From very knowledgeable guides, we learnt about the life of Henry Moore, the inspiration for his sculptures and other many art works, and the methods used to create them. Add to this a warm welcome from your staff, delicious catering, beautiful gardens and grounds, all contributing to make a perfect day out. Several members have said they will be visiting again. On behalf of us all, thank you very much for arranging everything”

“I want to say a huge thank you for our very enjoyable outing on Thursday. We had a very warm welcome from staff and the 3 guides were exceptionally good. My wonderful 92 year old client Mary Algar (an artist and print maker herself) appreciated the loan of a mobility scooter and used it to get about and sketch the sculptures. Finally, thanks for all your help making the group booking go so smoothly. I will be recommending the Henry Moore Foundation to other branches of Age UK. ”
