Sculpture by the lakes

Hello everyone, how was your September? As summer ends, this month I’m going to review one of my favourite places to visit – Sculpture by the Lakes in Dorchester.

What is Sculpture by the Lakes?
Sculpture by the Lakes is a beautiful garden that has amazing statues and great scenery. It is a fantastic place to visit, and it is a very disabled-friendly place to go.
The gardens are incredibly beautiful, and amazing for people who have special needs. The sculptures are fantastic to look at, and they can be a bit different.

The Art Gallery
In a small building there is a special art gallery that is full of amazing discoveries. When you go inside it has miniature-sized sculptures as well as some beautiful artwork displayed. It is a wonderful place to look around, especially when you learn about history through art.

What kind of gardens do they have?
Is it suitable for everyone?
It is suitable for almost anyone – but children under 14, including babies, aren’t allowed. Nor are dogs. It is perfect for an end of summer trip for anyone who really likes fantastic scenery.

How much does it Cost?
If you’re thinking of planning your visit booking is essential on the website, the cost is £14.50 per person. The winter opening hours (which started on the 1st of October) are 10am to 5pm Tuesday to Saturday.

I hope you enjoyed this review and have a wonderful day everyone.
