Devon Sculpture Park has a sizable permanent collection of individual sculptures and installations. Developed over many decades the Open Air collection is now open to visitors. Visit us and book a Guided Art Tour – CLICK HERE.
Sculptures in the rewilded parkland reflect the extraordinary contours of the land and endless seascapes.
The permanent collection includes the largest collection of resident artist Letts’ environmental artworks plus dozens of sculptures from other leading UK artists.
Open scrub and woodland house an eclectic mix of environmental installations and graffiti art.
The Capability Brown gardens above the 800 year old church house sculptures installed decades ago.
Nearly 100 artworks can be viewed across 50 acres of the sculpture park.

Devon Sculpture Park is surrounded by parkland and a recently established Wilding Project. Book a Wilding Tour – CLICK HERE.
Nearly 100 acres have been rewilded letting the land and nature return to their ancient, organic roots. Ploughing and fertiliser destroy the soil and damage our fragile environment – we do neither.
We nurture and support wildlife to manage the land with us. Ponies, Roe deer and small rare breed sheep top grass and keep invasive weed back. Alpacas lift lower canopy, protect new born lambs and eat thistle. Pigs manage scrub.
An extraordinary array of birds, bees and butterfly share our trees and hedgerow with field mice, bugs, hedge hogs and snakes.
Our lakes support a rich variety of fish, newt and dragonfly with duck and heron frequent visitors.
We believe the combination of sculpture park and rewilding project is unique. The wildlife and nature are a part of the overall installation, of our living art. Environmental, sustainable art is the future. Environmental issues are vital for artists to attack.
Devon Sculpture Park is a new kind of outdoor art centre. We are not just one of the UK’s larger sculpture parks by acreage, we have the ambition to be a broader centre for the arts.
We were established by resident artist, Philip Letts, to support sculpture, visual arts both indoor and outdoor plus design, film, theatre, books, music, cooking and innovation.
At the bottom of the Capability Brown gardens is a sizable natural amphitheatre where we plan to host theatre, music and performance art – overlooking the sea.
We are a platform for artists to show how uniquely they can challenge our thinking, how effectively they enable us to see things differently. If you would like to talk to us about putting on an event just email email@example.com. We would love to hear from you.
The Capability Brown gardens and ‘ART WILDED’ exhibition are open from Wednesday to Sunday, 10am – 4pm. Adults £12, children under 12 £6.
We also host group visits and guided art tours across the entire park. Book an art tour – CLICK HERE.
At opening over 100 sculptures and artworks will be in place across 40 acres of the park and gardens.
