Visited in sept as a family of four , kids aged 5&9. Attraction was busy with lots of people around the place. No signs to say lots of water and when we started to go through, no one on reception area and went up into admissions area. Given guides and activity for the kids. Started well but then we went...

We visited for the first time last week after hearing great reviews from friends & weren't disappointed. Lots of interesting & fun twists & turns in the gardens which kept my 5 year old (& partner!) occupied for a good few hours, we took a picnic but the cafe looked nice. Clean & well kept grounds, all in all a... More

Me, my partner and friends (aged 23-30) went to Forbidden Corner on 14/09/2014... We all agreed it was the BEST day out we have had in a long time!!! Unlike most days out, it doesn't matter what the weather is like, as you get wet and grubby anyway! I would definately go first thing or after lunch, so you can... More

Excellent venue. Book early to enjoy the full experience of The Forbidden Corner. Full of surprises and quirky features. Fun place for children and adults. Can be scary for little ones though.

This was our 3rd visit. Not visited for about 8 years. This is a fun place for all ages with lots to discover. There are new areas which have been added which do not disappoint. Go and enjoy and be prepared to get wet!! It does get busy though but still well worth a visit.

Went here with our 18 month old child and she loved it. It was a lovely day and we called to book but advised we could just turn up and enter which we did and found it not to be too busy. Lovely walkways and plenty of special things to view. Got lost a few times but that was whats... More

we (2 adults both well out of childhood!!!) visited on a lovely warm Monday (once the kids had gone back to school) - so the park was not too busy. we must have spent at least three hours wandering around to make sure we had seen everything and didn't miss anything. The mausoleum and the underworld were our favourites. Went... More

Very difficult place to describe! Started out as a folly for owner's family and friends and grew into an attraction for the public. Not especially cheap - £10 per person for concessions but truly an amazing place. You get a leaflet showing pictures of what you may be able to find and then tick them off as you do, but... More

I was first brought here by a friend in the mid 90s and it was like going back to the best bits of childhood. I've been back once or twice since then (last time in 2010, but it doesn't give the option to put anything earlier than 2013) and it has changed and grown quite a bit, adding to and... More
