The Forbidden Corner

Tupgill Park Estate



North Yorkshire


Website: http://www.theforbiddencorner.co.uk/

Landline: 01969 640638

The Forbidden Corner is a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers, follies and surprises created in a four acre garden in the heart of Tupgill Park and the Yorkshire Dales.

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.

The brainchild of Mr C.R.Armstrong 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 visit to The forbidden Corner usually takes about 2 hours but people normally will spend a lot longer, you may go in and out of the gardens as many times as you like, but visitors must vacate the gardens before closing at 6pm.
