Went there last week down very narrow and dangerous roads with huge agricultural lorries as wide as the road itself coming the other way. Advertised as being open every day but when we arrived early afternoon everything was locked up and there was no one...More

Really sorry but updating Trip Advisor and Google takes time. Canwood Gallery is open April - October but the Outdoor Sculpture Park is open all year round. It is a family run charitable venture providing good quality art for free to people in Herefordshire.

In the middle of nowhere, close to Woolhope but well worth a windy trip along tight country lanes. Greeted by amazing sculptures set amongst stunning scenery. Easy walking. Cafe and facilities on sight.

We were terribly impressed with this... arriving after a drive through beautiful countryside, your first glimpse of a sculpture popping up out of a field of wildflowers sets the tone for a very special couple of hours. We were lucky enough to have lovely weather...More

Wonderful gallery with changing exhibitions, and a permanent (though changing as well) sculpture park. We had a really lovely time today visiting the gallery, and had a lovely cream tea to boot! The HCA alumni exhibition was particularly interesting. It is a little tricky to...More

The drive here is simpy fantastic and lifts the spirits. It is a remote location down really narrow roads. The sculptures are a real eclectic collection - but the setting was a real wow for us.

Apologies. We are self funded and family run and as such printing, etc. all costs money. We are a charity and are hoping to raise funds to be able to provide staff and better facilities. Unfortunately it is always tricky during school time as I...More

This is a cracker of a venue for art and sculpture. The exhibits will vary, but whenever I’ve been there’s always been some good quality and if you’re in the market do some art, some good purchases.
