The Forbidden Corner

The Forbidden Corner

The Forbidden Corner is a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers, follies and surprises  created within a four acre garden in the heart of Tupgill Park and the Yorkshire Dales. A visitor attraction unlike anywhere that you have been before, ideal for the adventurers and those young at heart!

The Forbidden Corner

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 – at every turn there are decisions to make and tricks to avoid. This is a day out with a difference which will challenge and delight adults and children of all ages. Enjoy a day out in Yorkshire at The Forbidden Corner.

The brainchild of Mr C.R.Armstrong CMG O.B.E, The Forbidden Corner was originally built as a private folly but due to public demand was subsequently opened to the public. A great family day out.
