Mazes are popular with kids and adults alike. On a nice day, getting lost in a maze can be lots of fun and a chance to get some fresh air and physical activity. Many of the mazes offer additional attractions such as gardens, play areas and cafes too.
In Norfolk, we’ve got a couple of outstanding maize mazes: Wizard Maze & Play at Metton is very close to Cromer (and Felbrigg). It comes complete with a 12 acre maize maze and a large play area for all ages, including jumping pillows and a maze trailer ride. There’s a café onsite and birthday parties can be catered for.
Close to Great Yarmouth, at Hemsby is Hirsty’s Family Fun Day Out, Home of Hemsby Mega Maze. As well as similar attractions, this also offers a zip wire, go-karts and a crazy croquet course.
Near Beccles (in the Waveney Valley) is Hundred River Farm, which usually grows a maize maze every year.
If you’re looking for a more traditional maze, there’s a small maze at Priory Maze & Gardens, just outside Sheringham. This is one of our favourite places in Norfolk; set amongst the most splendid gardens, this is a place of real beauty and tranquillity. A café is available.
Somerleyton Hall (just outside Norfolk, near Gorleston/Great Yarmouth) has one of the finest yew hedge mazes in Britain, planted back in 1846, all set within beautiful surrounding gardens. The route out is around 800 yards from the centre, but most visitors find it takes rather longer to solve the maze’s mysteries!
NB – Always check websites first as many of the mazes listed are only open seasonally.
If you know of any other mazes in Norfolk, please let us know – thank you.
