      ''The Forbidden Corner is 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, 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.'' http://www.yorkshirenet.co.uk/theforbiddencorner/ this really is the most wonderful victorian folly, huge garden, to explore, set in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside, in an area where many horse trainers live and train their horses on the roads round the area. its mini adventure for kids and adults too.Its a bit like a treasure hunt. It has underground caverns, with revolving doors and fountains, and you are never quite sure exactly where you are!! With lots of surprises, things to look down on, things to look up to, I have never been anywhere quite like it. I am usually a bit claustrophbic, but was too excited to let that bother me. My children ran off in all directions, and my dear old dad, and my 80 year old mother managed all the tunnels and caverns and had a marvellous time. [she is a fit old bird mind you] There were people from toddlers to the very old, although its not much use if your children are in buggies . even the teenagers had a great time, and they are usually the first to criticise. There is a huge sculpture of a giant made out of tree trunks that is incredibly imposing....beautiful, eerie, like the entire place really.!! watch out for the water..there are lots of trickling tricks waiting for you....but you dont actually get a real soaking. [ unless its pouring with rain, like it does lots in Yorkshire]the children loved this aspect. but they would wouldnt they? Its a mite tricky to find as its in the middle of nowhere, and it doesnt open till 10, because of the horse race training in the village apparently. Get there quickly, because Brussells will surely get it closed down as there is no plastic in it, the steps are a bit steep,somebody might trip up one day, and you might get damp..... it will take you about an hour to get your bearings, and there are always staff wandering about to direct you if you get a bit worried. the kids rush about and have it all sussed out in about 10 minutes! But what an adventure! Ring to tell them you are coming as it gets quite busy and they need to keep the numbers low.[see link above] hope you enjoy it!!!!!
