Gallery Walk, Wakefield WF1 5AW 01924 247 360
Leeds has done its best over the years to appropriate famous sons and daughters, but eminent sculptor Barbara Hepworth (graduate of Leeds School of Art, like Henry Moore) was definitely a Wakefield lass, from the next city on (about 14 miles south of Leeds). She’s celebrated in Wakefield’s astounding contemporary art gallery – the largest modern purpose-built exhibition space outside London – and you’ll see works by her here, as well as changing shows by contemporary artists and sculptors. The riverside building, by David Chipperfield Architects (who also designed Margate’s Turner Contemporary), is a modernist stunner. Come the third Thursday of the month, there's late-night shopping, food and art (until 9pm), when the gallery, shop and cafe-bar stay open.
