Curator-led Summer Tours For Kielder Art & Architecture

Visitors to Kielder Water & Forest Park in August can enjoy two special tours of the area’s Art & Architecture installations led by the collection’s curator, Peter Sharpe.

The tours take place on Sunday, August 13 and Wednesday, August 16, giving visitors the opportunity to learn about the inspiration behind some of Kielder Art & Architecture’s most iconic pieces, as they head off the beaten track and into Kielder Forest.

Both run from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.

Lynn Turner, Director of Kielder Water & Forest Park Development Trust, said: “These tours have proved popular over the course of the summer so far, taking in artworks such as the award winning Belvedere and Silvas Capitalis – the Forest Head, which is a real favourite with visitors. This is a great way of getting out and seeing the installations around Kielder Water & Forest Park, and to learn the stories and inspiration behind them.”

Transport is provided, with some walking required. Warm, waterproof clothing and appropriate footwear are recommended.

Booking is essential and can be made on 0845 1550236. Prices are £10 per person, or £25 for a family ticket covering two adults and two children.
