Great art gallery

We visited the Hepworth today and were greeted on arrival. There was a one way system in place, lots of hand sanitiser stations in place and staff were wearing face coverings. Please be aware that the hand sanitiser stations are foot pump operated (like a bathroom bin). Screens were around the central desk. There is a large lift upstairs to the galleries. The art was really nice and interesting. There was a temporary exhibition that was free to enter for Wakefield residents but only £3 to others. Well recommended to visit. We have been before many times and have had no issues with my girlfriend’s wheelchair requirements.
Transport & Parking
We travelled to the gallery on the free Wakefield bus that is wheelchair accessible. There is a bus stop very close to the gallery.
The gallery is very accessible, flat surfaces everywhere and lift up to the gallery. Seats available throughout for rests.
