The Curious Case of the Wistow Maze

To mark the 130th anniversary of the first Sherlock Holmes novel, the award-winning Wistow Maze has been designed in the shape of Sherlock himself.

Sherlock has fascinated millions by solving the most inexplicable of crimes, and now visitors to the Wistow Maze can put their own detective skills to the test, finding their way both through the maze and collecting different clues along the way.

This year the giant 8 acre maize maze has a fun ‘Whodunnit’ themed Quiz Trail hidden amongst its 3 miles of paths, with high level bridges and towers giving stunning panoramic views.

An excellent family day out, visitors can also take part in a variety of mini mazes and games in the Activity Funyard, which includes a space hopper track, hoopla, beanbag throwing and a football shooting game.

Across the road is the Wistow Rural Centre with its cafe, garden centre, art gallery, model village and numerous shops, ensuring there really is something to satisfy all ages. Wistow Maze is a winner of Leicestershire’s “Best Visitor Attraction” and attracts over 20,000 visitors each year.
