The Weirdest Places You’ve Probably Never Heard Of

The Forbidden Corner - North Yorkshire, England

As you go about your daily life, it’s easy to forget all of the weird and wonderful things that are tucked away around the world. Check out the weirdest places you’ve probably never heard of.

1. The Gnome Reserve – Devon, England

Welcome to the fairy tale! The Gnome Reserve is a land full of forests, meadows, gardens created from various plants. But among them you can find dozens of gnomes. The reserve holds more than 2,000 gnomes, and is included in the Guinness Book of World Records. The four acre Reserve is also home to model pixies. It is located at West Putford, near Bradworthy, Devon, England.

2. Teapot Island – Kent, England

Something for those who like really unusual ideas. Teapot Island is a teapot museum located in Kent, England with over 6,000 teapots. There are traditional teapots, old and simple as well as more fancy – ceramic, decorated, handmade.

3. The Thin House – London, England

It’s hard to believe that anyone could make this building to live in. It is a true architectural anomaly – from the front it looks like many other houses, but the side is incredibly thin.

4. The Forbidden Corner – North Yorkshire, England

The Forbidden Corner is a folly garden located in the Tupgill Park Estate, near Coverdale, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is open to the public. The garden features statues, towers, underground maze, a labyrinth (with revolving floor), a 12 feet (3.7 m) conifer dog’s head, a 20 feet (6.1 m) oak green man, and water jokes, as well as grottos. It also has a tea room and gift shop. It covers 4 acres (0.016 km2). It is set out as a maze, and visitors are given a checklist of things to be found instead, rather than a map.

5. Thor’s Well, Oregon, USA

Now we move to the other side of the pond with the weirdest places. Thor’s Well is the incredible gigantic hole that appears to be draining water from the Pacific Ocean. It is located on the Oregon coast. However, the seawater levels in the Pacific Ocean are actually perfectly safe, because the Thor’s Well is actually around 20 feet deep.

6. Lake Hillier, Western Australia

Lake Hillier is a saline lake on the edge of Middle Island, the largest of the islands and islets that make up the Recherche Archipelago in the Goldfields-Esperance region, off the south coast of Western Australia. It is particularly notable for its pink colour. A long and thin shore divides the Southern Ocean from the lake.

7. Chocolate Hills of Bohol Island, the Philippines

The Chocolate Hills are a geological formation in the Bohol province of the Philippines. There are at least 1,260 hills. They could be mistaken for being man-made. However, according to UNESCO they are the uplift of coral deposits and a result of rainwater erosion. The hills are covered in green grass that turns brown (like chocolate) during the dry season, hence the name.

8.  Red Beach, Panjin, China

9. Whale Bone Alley, Siberia, Russia

Whale Bone Alley, Siberia, Russia

A stretch of the northern shore on remote Yttygran Island, 82km off the coast of Alaska, has become a macabre tourist destination. Massive whale jawbones, ribs and vertebrae stand horizontal in the ground forming an eerie alleyway.

10.  Cat Island, Japan

Aoshima is an island located in Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan. There is a reason people called it a cat paradise. Over 120 cats live there. It’s more than people living there. Learn more HERE.
