Weekend Day Out

Weekend day out

Give your family, friends and yourself a break from the boring working week at The Forbidden Corner.

From November, we are entering our winter season and will only be open on Sundays from 10am until 3pm in November and 10am until 2pm in December. Although we are only open for one day a week, you will still have an amazing time exploring the gardens, tunnels and hidden areas making The Forbidden Corner a perfect weekend day out.

Sculptures and Interesting Characters.

Big DogLurking around the gardens are sculptures of varying sizes, such as the Armstrong statue and glass pyramid. There are also interesting characters for you to meet, such as the sleepy giant, the floating griffin and our giant woodsman. You will also be greeted by our tree giant who will point you in the direction of adventure.

Tunnels and Underground Caverns.

Forbidden TunnelsAs well as the maze of passages and paths around our gardens and wooded area, things get even stranger when you go underground and start exploring the labyrinth of tunnels beneath The Forbidden Corners grounds. You will find giant mice and if you are lucky (or unlucky if you listen to the mice) you may even find a giant feline. There are many ways to get lost, confused and scared when you go down our tunnels.

Corner Cafe and Gift Shop.

Corner CafeTo enjoy the whole of your weekend day out, we have our own Corner Cafe that can provide a wide variety of foods, from our own Devil Burger to jacket potatoes with a choice of fillings. We also have plenty of cold and hot drinks to quench your thirst. If you feel like treating yourself, there is also a yummy selection of cakes and pastries.
