Find your Way Through the Amazing Maze
The Hedge Maze is currently closed while some essential maintenance is carried out. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
Your mission is to find your way to the observation tower. How quickly can you get there? Do you take the path on the left or one on the right? Should you retrace your steps?
You’re bound to get lost. There’s nearly 1¾ miles of paths hedged by more than 16,000 English Yews with twists and turns galore. The mysterious Hedge Maze keeps everyone guessing!
As you figure out your way through, you’ll come across 6 bridges where you’ll get tantalising glimpses of the observation tower that is your target. But how close are you? And when will you get there? However long it takes, you’ll have loads of fun along the way!
