The maze is now CLOSED for 2017. It will re-open mid-July 2018 with a new design and theme.
Most of your questions will be answered on the Frequently Asked Question (FAQ) page. But the most important thing is to remember it is an agricultural field and after rain the paths do get muddy (wellies advisable). With really bad weather the maze sometimes has to close, so please check the website or ring 07884 403889 before leaving home.

Please be aware that the maize field is very much agricultural (it is harvested for cattle feed in the Autumn). Therefore the paths are simply packed earth, which may be uneven in places and muddy during wet weather (so please wear appropriate clothing and footwear). Wellies definitely advisable if its been raining. These conditions also make it less suitable for wheelchairs. Prams can easily get round, but again after rain it is not so easy. Being a living crop, the maize is shorter at the beginning of the season, and grows taller throughout.
Dogs are not allowed (except Guide Dogs) in the Maze or Activity Funyard. There are however, fields for dog walking nearby.
Why not try something completely different that everyone will enjoy.
A unique way of entertaining staff! Very interactive and good for team building.
