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, complete with deerstalker hat and pipe. “First conceived in 1887 by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes has fascinated millions of adults and children alike with his extraordinary brain, solving the most inexplicable of crimes over the decades. 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,” explains Diana Brooks, owner of Wistow Maze.
Opening this year on Wednesday 19th July, Leicestershire’s famous Wistow Maze features three miles of intricate pathways carved through eight acres of living corn, with high level bridges and towers giving fabulous panoramic views.
Diana continues: “The challenge is to find 12 quiz boards hidden amongst the paths of the giant maze. Each one will have a clue to help identify the culprit and solve the curious case of the Wistow Maze!”
An excellent family day out, visitors can not only pit their wits against the maze but can also take part in a variety of mini mazes and games in the Activity Funyard, which includes a space hopper track, hoopla 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. The Wistow Maze is a winner of Leicestershire’s “Best Visitor Attraction” and attracts over 20,000 visitors each year. Opens: Wed 19th July - Sun 3rd Sept (daily), then weekends only until Sun 17th Sept. 10am – 6pm Free Parking. Admission charges: Child £5.95 Adult £6.95 Family Ticket (2+2) £24
