Excellent day out for children. Older people need to be aware that there are steep steps, narrow tunnels, etc. The Saddle Room restaurant was appalling value. The one vegetarian dish was a small portion of rice with a few little bits of cauliflower mixed in. The creme brulé was very good, but the two course lunch on the whole was... More

Have been wanting to try this for a while but wanted to wait until we didnt need a pushchair, can see why it would be difficult with one, you would miss a lot. Very different, had good weather which i think makes a difference. Kids 4 and 7 loved it, had snacks in the cafe which were nice if expensive.... More

Amazing day out well worth the 2hr drive. Children enjoyed it but youngest 6 was afraid of some of it. Will definitely come back maybe when a bit older. A bit over crowded in some tunnels a bit gridlocked at times. But still a good day out great fun

Had a brilliant day yesterday with my 6 year old niece, she absolutely loved it. It was my second visit and there were still bits I hadn't seen/ couldn't remember so it was like a first visit all over again. Only down side is, as it was so busy (to be expected) it did get a bit crowded and uncomfortable... More

Like nowhere we have ever been! Definitely recommend it! Give yourselves at least 3 hours to get around everything. Even in the school holidays it didn't feel too busy.

This is a fantastic place and both the kids and adults loved it. Really cleverly laid out and it felt like you were in Alice in Wonderland. Word of caution - avoid the ghosty bit with small children as even my 11 yr. old was a bit scared. Great day out and great place well done.

Visited with two 13 year olds and one 55 year old. Everyone had a great time. A really unusual place. Thoroughly recommend it.

We visited The Forbidden Corner on Monday 14th April. We were a party 6, Mum Dad 10 yr old girl and 7 yr old boy and us, Nana & Grandad. We had a lovely day. Although there were quite a lot of people in the Garden, because of the 'timed staggered' entry we never felt overwhelmed with people. The gardens... More

This was our first visit here. The setting is lovely as are the grounds and outdoor areas. My kids were very scared in the dark enclosed areas and we found it hard to find our way out. Think it would be better to have some staff available for help/directions. On the whole very nice place
