Lots to find and enjoy in this amazing place! Must check the amazing Toilets! Some bits can be a bit scary for small children but these can be avoided

We had an enjoyable afternoon exploring this unusual garden. (50 yr old Female, 10 yr old boy) We may have missed the odd thing as no directions. If you are happy not knowing what you will come across this is the perfect place for you. A bit crowded in places (people not wanting to pass through the water, as the... More

A group of six visited here and what a bizarre experience. It's a place you can definitely keep entertained for the whole day. Make sure you wear good walking shoes, I did see a lady in high heals!! Oh bring a pen! If you want to make the day cheaper bring you're own picnic and eat it in the picnic... More

I visited The Forbidden Corner in its early days when my children were small and we all loved it. Almost two decades later, we decided to go back. What a transformation! It is now totally over-developed, overpriced and over-full! There were so many people there that we had to queue some of the way round. It felt like we were... More

Some scary bits for my 2 year old but enjoyed most of it. We all got a bit wet from the hidden water shoots. Don't miss the secret garden area (go right after large mouth entrance) and stay for the musical/dancing frogs.

My family had a wonderful day here. My daughter's age 5 and 8 thought it was amazing saying it came a close 2nd to Disneyland Paris. We loved exploring ever nook and cranny and went round a few times so we didn't miss a thing. The views are amazing and we loved the hidden water features :) Some areas were... More

My now husband took me here as a surprise day out while we were dating. We arrived very early, around 9 so there was no one there. It was amazing creeping through the fantasy tunnels and coming out in sneaky nooks and crannies, jumping at every noise and finding new roads and doors. It is a wonderful day out for... More

While the Corner is mostly aimed at young children, if you can enjoy getting a bit lost and laughing at the props it's very fun. There were plenty of adults without children in there getting turned around with us. The features are designed to get you wet, so bring a waterproof if this doesn't appeal. Some things also involve "sucking... More

I went with my children aged 10 and 13 and my 75 year old mum. It is very well organised and executed with friendly staff. We were very excited as we set off on our journey however as we progressed through the corner we became anxious and disheartened for two main reasons: 1 - there were a lot of school... More

I'd visited The Forbidden Corner as a child, and could only remember certain things so decided to return. Some areas are looking a little tired/run down, but overall it was a fun day out, offering something different to do. Lots of walking, and you will probably get wet (I got stuck in one of the attractions and got soaked) so... More
