Forbidden Corner (Tupgill Park) Tours
Read MoreShow Less
With its maze of tunnels, hidden grottoes and gardens spread over four acres, the Forbidden Corner is one of England's most eccentric parks and it makes a fascinating diversion from the surrounding Yorkshire Dales National Park. Originally the private garden of C.R. Armstrong, the unique space was created by architect Malcolm Tempest and opened to the public in 1994 as part of Tupgill Park.
Visitors to the Forbidden Corner are free to explore the fantasy landscape, equipped with a map-less guide and quirky clues to help them find their way around. Highlights include the Giant Pointing Tree, the Temple of the Underworld and the Eye of the Needle, but there are also woodland walking trails, a walled herb garden, a maze and a terrace with spectacular views over the Dales. Keep an eye out for the animated Froggy Fountain, which spurts water at unsuspecting passersby, and a series of weird and wonderful statues, including a glass pyramid, a stone stegosaurus, a giant mousetrap and a stone griffin.
The Forbidden Corner is located in Tupgill Park Estate in North Yorkshire, 45 miles (72 km) northwest of York. The site is open from March to October. Opening hours are Monday to Saturday from noon to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is £11.50 for adults, £9.50 for children and free for those under 4.
