The beautiful Inspired by… gallery at Danby Lodge National Park Centre (formerly The Moors National Park Centre) hosts changing exhibitions of work by artists and makers who draw their inspiration from the landscape, life and colour of the North York Moors.

We have an exciting programme of exhibitions and arts and craft courses every year. Panoramic vistas, seascapes, dramatic photography, unique ceramics, colourful textiles and artist-led courses and talks - what will inspire you today? Talk to your favourite artists or discover new ones at our 'Meet the Artist' preview events. Join us for a drink and nibbles while learning about their work.

Artwork including prints and photography, and artisan crafts, from ironwork to jewellery, are available for sale in the gallery shop and craft area.

The Inspired by... gallery can be found at Danby Lodge, Danby. See Planning your visit for further information on how to get here and opening times, while our Accessibility page gives you detailed information to help when planning your visit.

Please note Danby Lodge, including the Inspired by... gallery, will close at 1pm on Friday 15 July for a private function. Park Life Café will remain open.
