This is the most amazing experience and will shortly be closing for ever, although the works I think are being donated to Pallant House Gallery. So I urge everyone to go whilst it is still there. Perfect day out for art lovers, art novices and families and it's all in the open but idyllic setting on the outskirts of Chichester.

We spent around 4 hours here. The grounds are beautiful. So relaxing. I would recommend taking a picnic. Lots of lovely spots to sit and take it all in. A good value day out. The sculptures do change so we will be back.

This place is extraordinary. The man who founded it, Wilfred Cass, basically set it up in his back garden and it has become home to a wonderful and ever-changing collection of huge sculptures which are just beautiful and inspiring. He still lives there and can be seen enjoying the sculptures along with the visitors - and he's in his nineties now. Go when the weather is nice and stay as long as you can. Bring a picnic and just enjoy a unique place.

This attraction is set in such magnificent grounds, location and surroundings but the tragedy is the really poor standard of maintenance of the sculptures. Some are completely broken, in a dreadful state of repair, no longer give the impact they were intended to or are simply tired - it completely ruined our visit that we were looking forward to with such expectation.
The artists contributing and exhibiting their work must feel let down as we were on their behalf. Nonetheless we did enjoy the wonderful views and grounds.

Dear MRSA240115, Thank you very much for your feedback, we value the opinions of all of our visitors. We are pleased to inform you know that we have now initiated a restoration programme. Of the 60 works currently on display in our grounds, there are 5 which will be given special attention over the next few years. As with all ground breaking out-door large-scale sculpture, it is often difficult to predict how some materials will respond to changing conditions. We do hope that you will come back to see the works in their full glory, and continue to support Cass Sculpture Foundations charitable mission – to support and enable creativity in contemporary sculpture. Best wishes, Cass Sculpture Foundation

I was disappointed to find that although Trip Advisor lists this as being a good thing to do in Chichester, it isn't in Chichester, it's at Goodwood. Goodwood is a very long walk from Chichester, so I was unable to go there. Not sure how to get this fixed in TripAdvisor.

This must be the best collection of modern sculpture in the UK. The setting is woodland and parkland and there are around 100 exhibits. Honestly, it takes your breath away. The sculptures are not static so repeat visits are necessary. It is a national treasure.

Cass sculpture park was a truly unique place, very clean and fairly quiet, even though it was a very warm sunny day! We spent a good 3 hours slowly walking around the good number of sculptures, taking them all in. A very unique place that we stumbled across!

Take a picnic or at least a drink, as there is no shop or cafe on site.

What a wonderful place, to be honest I was not really looking forward to visiting but went along with my wife and was blown away. The place is in the middle of nowhere but easy to find and is well signposted from Chichester.
The grounds are partly enclosed by a high and impressive stone wall to the north and the South side gives stunning and impressive views of beautifully scenic rural West Sussex.
The gardens are serene and largely peaceful with lots of birds chattering and in song and the sculptures are mostly interesting and entertaining. One can wander around willy-nilly or follow the paths in an orderly fashion wandering from sculpture to sculpture sequentially from 1 to 51 following the provided map.
And the icing on the cake my friends is that there is nothing commercial what so ever about the place, there is no gift shop, no cafe or snack bar and the loos are clean and free.
Great place to visit, try for a dry day, with kids, friends, family, partner or just amble around on your own and if like us you might get lucky and bump into the owner and have an interesting chat.
As Arnie said, "I will be back"
