Devon Sculpture Park is the UK’s newest open-air gallery. Set in a 100 acre Wilding Project on an historic estate retreat just a few miles south of Exeter. Visit a sculpture park tackling climate change – where art, rugged seascapes and wildlife collide.

The Wilded Capability Brown gardens, including the main outdoor and indoor exhibitions, are open from Wednesday – Sunday, 10am – 4pm. Adults £12, children £6. Half price entry for repeat visits with DSP card. Parking is free. Dogs allowed on a lead. We accept cash or mobile Pingit (app).

THE PLACE

If you’re planning to visit follow the Directions at the bottom of this page.

And FYI we’re a park tackling Climate Change so the art, gardens, verges & grasslands are Wilded. Nature leads with habitats returned to ancient times.

This is not an ultra-manicured, traditional estate. Expect the unexpected..

THE TERRACES

Enjoy Mediterranean style lunches and teas at the Robert Adams Orangery overlooking the sea and gardens. Open Wednesday to Sunday, 11am – 3.30pm. Also Bank Holidays. The Terraces is currently exhibiting Matt Dingle’s stunning galvanised steel sculptures and structures.

EVENTS

Join us for our series of free events including Saturday Artist Talks and Sundays Talk on the Wild Side: Rewilding explained, both at 12pm. Also, Wednesday Wellbeing Walk and Learning Thursday, both at 2pm. We meet at The Terraces.

Mamhead Park (South) is just above Mamhead and Ashcombe, a few miles South of Exeter. From Exeter or the M5 heading South take the A380 and exit at Old Haldon Hill. From Newton Abbot or Torquay take the A380 North and exit at Mamhead taking the 2nd right turn over the flyover.

Follow the road signed Mamhead & Dawlish for 3/4 mile and make sure to take the first right turn to Ashcombe. Continue straight on this lane for 1 mile, passing Mamhead Woods & the Obelisk on your left. At the bottom of the hill turn left at the junction signed Mamhead Village Hall. Devon Sculpture Park is on the left after 300 yds. You will see a thatched gatehouse and a sign for the sculpture park.

If you find yourself in Mamhead village pass the village hall on your left and at the first crossroads turn right up the hill. Continue for 1 mile and you will see the entrance and thatched gatehouse after a right bend.

Enter the private drive and continue to ‘PARKING’ area just before the church. Parking is free. Walk past the church up to the main entrance following signs to Capability Brown gardens.

Whichever way you come you can only enter the sculpture park from the Southern entrance to Mamhead Park.
