Group Visits

Henry Moore Reclining Figure Tour

We would love you and your group to visit The Hepworth Wakefield. To make sure you have the best possible experience, please let us know when you are planning a trip. We will help you get the most out of your time in the gallery and discuss the options for your visit, which can include a Gallery Insights tour with a member of our friendly and knowledgeable Visitor Experience team.

Gallery Insight tours cost £5 per person and last around 45 minutes. We can tailor tours to your needs, so do tell us if you need a different length to fit with the itinerary for the rest of your day. 

We recommend that tours have no more than 15 people in the group. If larger than 15, we would encourage you to split into multiple groups - this will not affect the price. A deposit of 25% of the total cost is to be paid on confirmation of your booking, at least one month before your visit. We will need to receive final payment and numbers two weeks before the visit.   

We can offer tours on a range of topics that your group would like to cover.  This may include:

-       Barbara Hepworth – Her Life and Work
-       Henry Moore
-       The development of The Hepworth Wakefield and its role in regeneration
-       A tour around the temporary exhibition on display at the time of your visit*
-       Wakefield Permanent Art Collection

For an additional £2 per person, you can finish your tour in the Café Bar with a cup of Yorkshire tea and filter coffee at tables reserved for your group.  

If you’re interested in bringing your group, please call on 01924 247360 or email groups@hepworthwakefield.org to discuss your requirements.

Howard Hodgkin: Painting India, Friday 30 June - Sunday 8 October 2017
