Fantastic in every sense. Brilliant building, great permanent collection and really interesting exhibitions. The garden is beautiful and the cafe sets the standard for what museum/gallery food + drink should be.

We couldn’t recommend it enough!
We had our wedding ceremony at the Hepworth and it was fantastic. From the beginning, Alice was organised and incredibly helpful during the lead up to the day. On the day, all the staff members were professional and provided a 10/10 service. The canapés were delicious and the chef even designed bespoke canapé boards for any guests with allergies. For anyone wanting to get married somewhere a little bit different - we couldn’t recommend it enough!

I don't think I've ever eaten so well at a wedding
Just wanted to recommend The Hepworth Wakefield (art gallery) as a great wedding venue for vegans. I was the photographer at today's wedding, everything on their wedding menu was veggie and there were a few vegan guests. The food was excellent and they also brought out individual canape platters for the vegan guests. As a wedding photographer I don't think I have ever eaten so well at a wedding. The food was interesting and very flavourful. Highly recommended!
