Details

Wistow Maze is a giant 8 acre maize maze with a fun Quiz Trail hidden amongst 3 miles of pathways, with high-level bridges and towers giving fabulous panoramic views.

For 2017, to mark 130 years since the first “Sherlock Holmes” novel was written, the maze has been designed in the shape of Sherlock himself, with a “Whodunnit” themed Quiz Trail.

The maze includes an Activity Funyard with mini mazes and games for all the family, including hoopla, beanbag throwing, a space hopper track and football shooting game.

Situated opposite is the Wistow Rural Centre with a café/bistro, garden centre, model village, art gallery and numerous shops, making it a great day out for all ages.

A Winner of Leicestershire’s “Best Visitor Attraction” and awarded Trip Advisors “Certificate of Excellence”.
