Visit Kielder

Art and architecture

Over the past 16 years, the landscape around Kielder Water & Forest Park has become home to a unique collection of visual art and architecture, inspiring the creation of work in response to the scale and complexity of its unique environment and the area's varied and fascinating history. The abundance of contemporary art and architecture in this striking rural setting is accessible to all visitors and located at visitor centres, along the Lakeside Way and at sites within the forest.

The art and architecture programme at Kielder has been running since 1995, initially as a sculptural commissioning programme and since 1999, including architecture as part of its remit.During that time over 35 projects have been commissioned and over 20 pieces are currently available to visit, set across an area of 16 square miles, making the Park the largest outdoor space to experience art in the UK.
