Henry Moore Studios & Gardens in rural Hertfordshire is the best place in the world to appreciate the work of sculptor Henry Moore. Moore’s former estate is much as it was during the artist’s lifetime and provides the perfect backdrop for his work, which Moore always intended to be experienced in the landscape. You can experience Moore’s family home Hoglands, explore his studios, see his tapestries in the Aisled Barn and admire the gardens created by his wife Irina.
Group tickets are at a discounted price to include a guided tour of Hoglands (Moore’s former home), Studios, Gardens, Aisled Barn and a new exhibition this year: Henry Moore Drawings: The Art of Seeing.
Refreshments will be provided on arrival at 11.00 am.
