Have you seen this Indian sculpture park in… Wicklow?

Victoria’s Way is an intriguing outdoor gallery featuring, among others, Mahatma Gandhi “on his farewell tour”.

THE COUNTY OF Wicklow is not short of breathtaking scenery.

There is one 22-acre section of the Garden of Ireland, however, of which you may not be aware.

A place to both lose and find yourself, Victoria’s Way is a privately-owned sculpture and philosophy park. Built up over years, owner Victor Langheld has painstakingly designed the sculptures before commissioning their creation in India.

Composed of either black granite or bronze, they range in height from 5.5 feet to a towering 15 feet.

Open from 12.30pm to 6pm each day until 20 September, making your way around the sign-posted gardens takes around an hour, and longer if you take in the meanings and messages behind the pieces.
