The Forbidden Corner - York


The Forbidden Corner is a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers, follies and surprises created within a 4 acre garden in Tupgill Park in the Yorkshire Dales.

There is a temple of the Underworld, eye of the needle and a huge pyramid of translucent glass to explore through, as well as lots of other things to see and do! With lots of paths and passages leading to nowhere or somewhere, you have to make the decisions at every turn and try and avoid the tricks!!

The Forbidden Corner was originally built as a private folly but because it became so popular it was opened up to the public.

While there, why not visit the Fish Temple and enjoy their Herb Garden. The Herb Garden was part of a field, but in 2001 work was carried out and it now has 27 individual raised beds holding over 100 different herbs! 

The Fish Temple was originally an old "water box" or Horsebox, which used to be flooded to allow a horse to stand in the water for health purposes. Now inside they have laid a mosaic floor, fitted osprey and fish light fittings and have designed furniture carved from wood.

If you fancy a breather on your way around you can call into the Corner Cafe and have a bite to eat. They use locally sourced food products.

So if you are looking for a fun day out for all the family while you are staying here with us, then why not visit here!!
