The sculpture park changes the number of visitors it allows each day. The park is reducing the number of people it admits in order to improve the experience.
A spokesperson for The Sculpture Park, Farnham, said the measure will help create a more peaceful and calm atmosphere. While the park is downsizing, all visitors are still allowed, young and old. Dogs are allowed as long as they are kept on a short leash.
This means that, in order for the company to continue with a reduced workforce, the entry fee will increase. This means the entry fee will be increased to £15 or £10 for concessions (if you are a child aged 4-15, for students, disabled and for carers).

The price increase is the first since April 2015 and tickets must be pre-booked online via the website. You can spend anywhere from two hours to most of the day at the park, with picnics welcome. There is also a pub opposite, where you are allowed to go and re-enter the park afterwards.
The park made the decision after increasing its numbers following the pandemic. A spokesperson said at the start of the pandemic the park was completely empty for weeks during the lockdown, but when restrictions eased they started to hit record numbers again.
Entry times will also be staggered so you can enjoy the scenery without bumping into another person if you wish. The trail stretches two miles in one direction and features many carvings.
However, the spokesperson continued that the sculpture park is best when it is quiet so visitors can enjoy the tranquility of nature. From the chirping of birds and other wildlife, to running water or a gentle breeze, the reduced numbers mean you can enjoy it all.
