Mazes to visit

This page is going to be a Directory of UK Mazes that shows where you can find mazes all across the UK. The list will probably start with mazes you can visit in England, but we will then add information about visiting Welsh mazes, Scottish mazes and eventually, Irish mazes. Hopefully, we will have a list to all the maze websites, so that people can find them, and eventually maze reviews too.

Bear in mind that maize mazes are grown ever summer and are generally around from between June / July to September. Check individual websites for exact dates and opening times.
