The Maize Maze returns to Penshurst Place this year – opening on Saturday 20th July. After great customer feedback for the Maize Maze last year, Penshurst Place will be replanting the attraction for their visitors to enjoy over the school summer holidays. The new shape this year will have a medieval theme and will be revealed nearer the time via Facebook and Twitter. There will also be a mini maze for smaller children and on
Sundays you can also join in a Fool’s errand with storytelling entertainment from Aardvark
Productions down at the Maze – from 2pm. Weather permitting – please check website for
details.

The maze will be free to visit for full paying garden ticket holders and Penshurst Place
season ticket holders. For voucher and other ticket and card holders there will be a small
additional charge of £2 per adult, £1 per child per visit.

New features for this year’s event include a medieval fashion show depicting changes in dress through the years, and there’s even the chance to have a personal meeting with the King himself between 12noon and 3pm each day in the castle keep. More
