Forbidden Corner

A unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers, follies and surprises, created in a four acre garden in the heart of 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, and extraordinary statues at every turn, there are decisions to make and tricks to avoid, a day out with a difference that will challenge and delight children of all ages.

The Armstrong Mausoleum, recently unearthed and lost for centuries, dare you wander down this secret crypt where there are some scary surprises in store. The Cat & Mouse experience, a series of underground tunnels with life size sculptures, look out for the rather large surprise at the end.
