Welcome to the Hepworth Wakefield tour programme where we engage with art by engaging in conversations.

First-time visitors

If you’re a first-time visitor, join our free highlight tours at 11.15 am on Wednesday, Saturday, and Sunday. Tours last  30 minutes and involve an introduction to the permanent collection, including works by Barbara Hepworth.

If you are interested in a group visit or private introduction to the gallery or garden at a different time, please see our guided tour offer below and choose what appeals to you. 

Groups and regular visitors

Explore new temporary exhibitions and rediscover familiar art from a new perspective. Choose from a range of guided tour topics that cover art and social history at the Hepworth Wakefield. 

Self-guided groups

Pre-booked, self-guided groups pay admission ticket prices, while the group leader gets a free entry. Self-directed visits are free for all people under 18 years and those living in the Wakefield District.


If you are interested in bringing a self-guided group, including a university self-guided group, please email us directly at:
