Plan Your Visit

Nestled in 26 acres of Dorset’s glorious countryside lies Sculpture by the Lakes, an oasis for art lovers and collectors alike created by renowned sculptor Simon Gudgeon. Simon’s vision was to create an environment for enthusiasts that blends nature’s beauty with inspiring works of art free from the constraints of enclosed spaces of a traditional gallery. The sculpture park has been carefully landscaped and curated to ensure each piece is positioned to enhance its aesthetic qualities as well as the visual surroundings.


Simon and his team look forward to welcoming you to Sculpture by the Lakes.


We like to give our guests the space and time to fully absorb and appreciate the sculpture park and so encourage you to bring a picnic and spend the day.


Due to deep and fast flowing water, unfortunately we do not allow dogs or children under the age of 14 (including babies).
