Set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales lies ‘The Forbidden Corner’ has won numerous awards including ‘Best Family Day Out’ by Little Chef in 2009.
The Forbidden Corner is a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers, follies and surprises which has been created in a 4 acre garden at Tupgill Park. The temple of the underworld, the eye of the needle, a huge pyramid made of translucent glass, paths and passages that lead nowhere, extraordinary statues – all of these features can be found and require decisions to be made and tricks to be avoided.
It takes a couple of hours for most people to get around the Forbidden Corner but take longer if you wish, many people do. There is also an excellent place to eat – The Corner Cafe – which has a varied menu and offers good value.
The Forbidden Corner is a day out with a difference which will both challenge and delight all of the family. The Forbidden Corner was originally built as a private folly but due to pressure from the public it was decided to open to the public.
Please note that visitors to The Forbidden Corner must pre-book as numbers are limited – visit their website here for more information.
