Maize mazes are becoming increasingly popular with each passing year. We love to challenge ourselves to complete at least one every summer. I’ve been researching places to visit in Yorkshire with maize mazes and the following all look like they are worth a visit. A lot of these may also be open over Halloween.
Maize Mazes in Yorkshire
The Maze will have wider paths than previous years for social distancing. New outdoor animal pens. Hand sanitiser at the entrance for you to use (or if you prefer bring your own). We have re vamped the woodland walk which looks amazing! More outdoor seating. Regular cleaning and sanitising during the day. Pick your own strawberries may also still be available.Birchfield Family Dairies

About Boston Park Farm Maize Maze “The pattern within the maze changes each year and we have had everything from a combine harvester to a horse and cart. When entering the Maize Maze you have to find the four flag poles, which are hidden throughout the maze. At each flag pole, there is a clip so that you can mark your sheet to show you have found that flag. Also lost in the maze is Maize Maize, she doesn’t have a flag pole so is a little harder to find! If you find all five then you win a lollipop!”
Other facilities include – The farm is also open and you have to purchase a combined ticket for the farm and the maze. There are outdoor play areas and animals. The indoor play areas remain closed. You can purchase animal feed online in advance.
