COVID-19 Update from DSP

Alternatively, if you can’t visit the park, let us bring the park to your home. From the comfort of your sofa, enjoy DSP Online.

We continue to offer a safe environment for people to get their exercise and recreation surrounded by wildlife, environmental art and an inspiring rewilding park.

It’s so important for our wellbeing to get out into nature, enjoy wildlife and art, and experience moments of peace and tranquility.

We work hard to keep your wildlife and sculpture park safe for you. Fewer visitors, socially distanced but more magical than ever. Expect some wonderful new environmental art and a wilder place then ever! 

As always, most of your time at DSP is in the outdoors. Portaloo toilet facilities are available. Devon Sculpture Park is a really safe place to enjoy a day visit in the wilded Capability Brown gardens, or one of our guided walking tours across DSP’s wildlands. You can also pre-book a workshop or private retreat. We take all the necessary precautions to safeguard the welfare of our staff and visitors but some of the challenges ahead are down to us as individuals – our judgment and our common sense.

The Sheds indoor salon gallery is featuring Terry Howe’s environmental art exhibition ‘Looking for Clues’. When the Sheds gallery is open face coverings must be worn and only one household group can enter at a time.

Visitor numbers will be strictly limited, few and far between, and you will need to pre-book your tickets online for ALL activities at the park. We suggest booking as early as possible to avoid disappointment. 

The wild kitchen is operating a Takeaway GOURMET PICNIC SERVICE. The pre-booked picnic will be available from a table on the terraces at the Robert Adam Orangery. We’ve spread the tables, chairs and benches out for safe distancing and scattered them around the park so you can find a safe place to enjoy your food. There are a number of covered seating areas in case it rains. Alternatively you can collect your gourmet lunch as you leave to enjoy at home.

Also, the Lakehouse is available for staycations.

Social distancing and hygiene are of the utmost importance so we would appreciate it if you could bring hand sanitiser with you. Please follow social distancing and government guidance when you visit. If you’re showing any of the symptoms of coronavirus, or if you’ve been in contact with anyone that has the virus in the last 10 days, please don’t visit.

We look forward to welcoming you, please look after yourselves and others. And join us at this vital project doing something about climate change. Find inspiration at a very private estate retreat.
