Came here after a recommendation by friends and we were all blown away by it. What a fantastic place - an incredible mind to have come up with it! We had a really enjoyable couple of hours and we still didn't see everything. Will definitely be back the future.

A day full of walking and exploring! Good fun for all ages, lots to find. I like how they don't let too many people in as when your looking for stuff it's more exciting when there's nobody out to find things before you. Plenty of unusual things to find. Beware some parts are not for the claustrophobic my sister didn't... More

Took my 5 year old grandson ..he loved it, lots to keep him occupied, looking for the brass rubbing plates to add to the sheet and looking for all the statues etc, lots of spraying water that made him giggle. Looks like it's been extended since we were last there and there's a pub/restuarant and holiday cottages, no wonder it's... More

It's the most fantastic place for kids and adults to spend a day booking on line was easy, we arrived at 12.30 our booking time was 2 pm they let us in and before we knew it. It was 5pm so much for everyone to enjoy

Great day out for young and old alike. Only downsides were the poor cleanliness of the toilets which were smelly through lack of cleaning and mediocre cafe which had slow service and disappointing deli sandwiches which consisted of a slightly stale roll with some ham and pickle slapped on. Shame really as otherwise a great place to visit.

We've been coming to the Forbidden Corner for about 20 years now, having initially stumbled across it on a day out many years ago. Over the years I've brought many friends and family, and everyone has had a wonderful time. Perhaps we've been lucky, but the sun has always shone on every visit! Yesterday was no different, and was a... More

Forbidden Corner is a great day out for all ages. Visited several times with my family (older and younger generations) and have always thoroughly enjoyed it. Mainly because there is something for everyone to do. It really takes you back to your childhood when you would adventure all the time, it is very interactive and a magical experience.

My second visit after many years and still fun to discover the things hidden in the garden. Although you are given a plan, it is quite hard to see everything, but finding it (and getting lost) is all part of the fun. It reminds me of an Alice in Wonderland adventure, disappearing down dark tunnels into a room with several... More
