The Forbidden Corner has a number of follies, tunnels, labyrinths, grottoes, woodland and walled gardens arranged to create a maze for visitors to explore.
No map of the gardens is provided there is instead an illustrated checklist of items to be found, surprises greet the visitor at every twist and turn.
Admission is by pre-booked tickets only.
Originally conceived as a private pleasure garden in the 1980s by Colin Armstrong, the owner of Tupgill Park, in association with the architect Malcolm Temptest. The gardens were later expanded and opened to the public and are now a very successful and popular attraction.
The Forbidden Corner has been voted the best European folly of the 20th century by the Folly Fellowship and best children's attraction in Yorkshire.
