Himalayan Garden & Sculpture Park
Set in the beautiful countryside between Masham and Ripon, Himalayan Garden and Sculpture Park is home to over 80 striking contemporary sculptures, situated within 45 acres of stunning woodland and gardens. The microclimate of the valley makes it fertile ground for the rare blue poppy, alongside the North’s largest collection of rhododendrons, azaleas and magnolias. The park features a Pagoda, Summerhouse, Norse Hut, contemplation circle and Himalayan Shelter enhanced by three lakes and decorative bridges. 2020 sees the creation of 4 unique sculptures by Karin Van der Molen inspired by the landscape; to add to the park’s internationally recognised art collection. Recent years have seen the introduction of a popular log cabin tearoom, and children’s playground. Winners of the Yorkshire in Bloom Tourist Attraction Award in 2018 and 2019 and Best Business Award 2019, the gardens have now been shortlisted in the Garden of the Year category for the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards 2020.
