It is described as England’s largest open-air gallery. And this weekend, people will be provided with a different way of experiencing some of the award-winning creations and architecture at Kielder Water and Forest Park.

On Sunday, the attraction is running a special minibus tour, which will be hosted by park art curator Peter Sharpe.

It will give people the chance to learn about the inspiration and development of some of Kielder’s most iconic pieces, including the eye-catching Silvas Capitalis, or the Forest Head.

The aim of the event is to make the artworks more accessible to people who wouldn’t normally walk or cycle as part of their visit to Kielder.

It will run from 1pm to 4.30pm, leaving from Kielder Castle Visitor Centre. The tour costs £5 per person or £15 for a family (two adults/two children).
