“Awesome - that is all!”

Written on: 13/11/2012 by jbleeds (2 reviews written)

We often visit this part of the world and have done for many years, but it was only by chance that we came across The Forbidden Corner when someone recommended it to us. Unusually, they don't seem to do much advertising and they actively limit visitor numbers by making the attraction pre-booking only, which means that the place never seems to be overly full (unlike a lot of other attractions) It's a little bit hard to describe, but if you've got younger kids you're going to love it just as… Read Full Review

“Unusual and fun few hours for 'brave' kids and adults!”

Written on: 17/08/2012 by Yorkie123 (1 review written)

We took our 6 year old girl to The Forbidden Corner and shared the day with some time at Aysgarth Falls some 8 miles from The Forbidden Corner. We had travelled 75 miles so we wanted to make it worth while! We took a picnic and ate it near to the duck ponds which was very pleasant in the sunshine, prior to our 2pm entry slot. We stood in the queue at 1.50pm and it took 20 to 30 minutes to get through the till area even though we had prebooked and paid via the internet. We felt that this part… Read Full Review

“Great day out- only a few silly niggles ”

Written on: 09/07/2012 by clairey123 (1 review written)

My boyfriend and I took my 6 year old son. It's about an hours drive but well worth it. We all loved it. You do need a good day or at least one with no rain as a lot is outside. Some parts my little one was a bit wary of with it being dark and narrow but he was fine. We spent about two hours wandering around, got soaked and a bit mucky but it was great fun. We brought a picnic but due to the rain the picnic area was a wash out but nothing can be done about that! Only silly niggles are that we… Read Full Review

“Best Day Out Ever! ”

Written on: 04/05/2012 by emjems (1 review written)

Myself, my partner and my little sister went in 2011, we thought it was the best day out we ever had so far and we go to many different places. the staff were lovely, the whole place was amazing,(this coming from two 22 year olds and a 13 year old :) ). it kept you on your toes and made you think which i find very fun. so therefore were going back a second time this May. As our mission is to find the dog! as we couldnt find it previously. Over all we think its a brilliant day out which can be… Read Full Review

“A Health and Safety Nightmare”

Written on: 28/08/2011 by Mummabluberry (1 review written)

I made the mistake of visiting during a bank holiday weekend but nevertheless I was under the impression that numbers of visitors were strictly monitored to avoid overcrowding. This was clearly not the case today. I took my grandsons there on a visit - aged 4 and 2 and it was a stressful and frightening experience. We got stuck in one of the narrow tunnels which was completely dark and so full of people that it was impossible to move in either direction. The steep stone steps were slippery due… Read Full Review

“Disappointed”

Written on: 22/08/2011

I saw a leaflet for the Forbidden Corner on holiday last year and we finally made the trip over the weekend with my sister and young son. We were really exciting having been to something that was similar in Scotland many years ago on holday. When we arrived we had to queue for a long time even though all tickets are pre-booked and it was difficult keeping a young child entertained, particularly when you aren't told what's going on. The website informs you that you have to book a specific… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/02/2011

I went to the forbidden corner with my family and literally thought it was the best day out we have had in a long time. It took us a very long time to get there seen as the sat nav went crackers and took us the complete wrong way, but other than that a fabulous trip. It was a great family bonding experience and it literally had something for everyone and my younger siblings loved it! We are going back next year and all can't wait for summer! My only complaint would be that the purpose of what… Read Full Review

“Visited this attraction with my 5 year old daughter...”

Written on: 08/08/2010

Visited this attraction with my 5 year old daughter who loved it. Every corner we turned there was something unexpected and different.Just when you thought you had seen it all you discover another hidden treasure. She loved the water features in which you can get very wet so a change of clothes is recommended.
The only downside is the lack of toilets as you are going round looking for all the different points of interest. There is a very reasonably priced cafe and a gift shop, although alot of… Read Full Review

A private eistrprnee not allowing reporters to see what it is doing is not a reflection of our government policy which is not secrecy at all except during the Bush Administration, where two things happened to restrict freedom of the press. One was that he would not give a press conference at all. He decided to filter what he had to say. Dick Cheney would only speak with Fox News. The other is that the FCC increased the consolidation of media outlets in one market, making only one voice heard.

“Been trying to visit Forbidden Corner for last couple...”

Written on: 27/07/2010 by TheDHW (1 review written)

Been trying to visit Forbidden Corner for last couple of summers and finally made it this year with husband and sister and brother-in-law. Well worth the wait and lived up to all expectation and reviews I had from friends. Probably as well we didn't go when my children (5 & 7) were younger, as both freaked out about the underground labyrinth bits and had a minor screaming abdab, but once they were reassured that nothing "was going to jump out at them" they wanted to go round again! I'm not so… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/07/2010

What a surprise! Our Son, Daughter-in-law and 2 Grandaughters had visited once before and were sure my Husband and I would love it. We did!! It was such splendid fun. From the first 'find' and surprise!! to the last 'joke' we enjoyed every minute and will have no hesitation in returning again in the future. We laughed all afternoon. Hope to find something similar (but a bit different) in the South. Would recommend (and have) to anyone visiting the area. Wear comfortable clothes and… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/06/2010

Great day out for the Family we really had a good time. I have read the previous reviews before going around and 90% of them were good so thought I would give it a go. I was given a leaflet and it was suggested to take my time and find all the items on the list. We managed to get a lot of them if i was coming again I would try and come early or pick a quite day as some areas were very busy . We had lunch in the cafe which was good value as they had really made an effort with the menu to get in… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/06/2010

Just been to Forbidden Corner today with my husband and son of 11. Had the most fantastic time and I would recommend it to anyone who has a touch of magic in their soul. I loved the fact that I saw kids, adults and teens all having a ball trying to live up to the challenge of negociating the tunnels, passages and mazes and solve all the clues! The whole point is that there is no map or set way to do this - you just have to live in the moment and see where it takes you. We didn't manage to find… Read Full Review

Best for Children over Three this place is amazing fun and excitement for the whole family, clever mazes tunnels and weird things are all around and something exiting around every corner. Everything is built to such high standards of quality, no plastic mushrooms here. Will go back in the summer to see it in bloom. Kids were entranced the whole time and even the journey there is fun on the winding roads… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/11/2009

Not happy - spent nearly £100 booking a group of visitors online to celebrate my son's birthday. Unfortunately he succumbed to swine flu and after contacting the forbidden corner we rescheduled. On the second date due to gale force winds and torrential rain we were unable to make the 1-2 hour journey. Upon contacting the company I was firstly informed by a rather beligerent young woman that it wasn't 'raining 'ere', and was then told that I could neither reschedule or receive a refund (online… Read Full Review
