just been here for the first time. There were 3 of us, all adults, and we had a great time! You have to pre-book ahead you can't just turn up. it was full of choices of which path or doorways to take (don't always believe what the signs tell you!) It was fun trying to get out of certain parts... More

We visited here lAst week. With 2 grandparents and 3children 4-10. I was led to believe it was a garden of some sort and it was not! I felt terrible for one grandparent who at 80 felt forced down the narrow tunnel (by all the other people queuing behind) and got stuck in the tiny end he was to get... More

What an awesome place! I found it on the internet while looking for days out in Yorkshire and it looked interesting so I booked it online. Very glad I did. The drive there was very pretty and the directions are very good on the sat nav if you put in the postcode. When we arrived at our allocated time slot... More

Took my 4 yr old daughter to Forbidden Corner this weekend and had the most fun. Felt like a child again running through the water getting wet. This is fantastically ran and such a beautiful well thought out place. Last thing my daughter said before going to sleep was thank you, I had the best day ever. Hi

Having traveled the country visiting various children's attractions I have to say that this one is one of our favorites. Lots of different parts to the maze, waterfalls, stepping stones, optical illusions and the views of the dales were amazing. This kept my hyperactive son constantly entertained, my teenage daughter as well as us adults. It certainly is a place... More

It was lovely for us getting lost in the forbidden corner. Never got to see a lot of it because my 5 and 3 year olds were too scared and just wanted to go home. They still talk about how scary it is now. None the less we will be back maybe in a year or two when they are... More

Like Hannah S says, this place is not just for kids. My partner and I went (both in our 50's) and loved it. What a great afternoon out and quite scary in places!
