General Entertainment
“The Forbidden Corner is a unique labyrinth of tunnels, chambers, follies and surprises created within a four acre garden in the heart of Tupgill Park and the Yorkshire Dales. A tourist visitor attraction unlike anywhere that you have been before, ideal for the adventurers and those young at heart! The temple of the underworld, the eye of the needle, a huge pyramid made of translucent glass, paths and passages that lead nowhere, extraordinary statues – at every turn there are decisions to make and tricks to avoid. This is a day out with a difference which will challenge and delight adults and children of all ages.”

Off-Licence
“Choose one of the hundreds of cocktails on offer (Eva's favourite is The Battenberg) before taking a seat outside along the wall mural or stumble up the wonky staircase to sit on a four poster bed looking over the bustling Harry Potter style streets of York. You'll be sure to meet some interesting characters here. Johnny Depp gives it a thumbs up!”
