Penshurst Place and Gardens Maize Maze
Penshurst Place - A New Woodland-themed Maize Maze for 2017!
The #PenshurstMaizeMaze is back once again with a brand new design challenge. This year the maze has been cut in the shape of the ancient Sidney Oak tree alongside a magnificent Stag, in celebration of the Penshurst Woodland.
Open daily from 15th July – 3rd September, the Maze will be ready and waiting for you to discover its concealed corridors and clues hidden within. This eco-friendly family fun can be enjoyed daily throughout the summer and is suitable for all the family, taking around 40 minutes to complete. The mini maze this year in the shape of an acorn, is perfect for younger adventurers, offering a shorter 15 minute journey. As always, both Mazes also have their own games to complete using the clue card you can pick up at the Maze entrance. Don’t worry if you get a little lost on your journey - stewards are available to assist and guide anyone requiring a little extra help or clues!
Fun for all the family
With something to offer all the family at this historic House and Gardens, Penshurst Place has a fabulous traditional adventure playground, woodland trail, picnic area, and a great range of delicious ice creams! They will also be running their popular Summer Sunday events throughout the summer from 23rd July to 3rd September with falconry, storytelling, craft activities and more!
Described as "the grandest and most perfectly preserved example of a fortified manor house in all England", at the heart of Penshurst Place is the medieval Baron's Hall, built in 1341. The adjoining Staterooms contain a wonderful collection of tapestries, furniture, portraits, porcelain and armour.
Once the property of Henry VIII, Penshurst Place & Gardens has been the ancestral estate of the noble Sidney family since 1552 and is still owned by the same family today.
Surrounded by ancient parkland, the 11 acres of beautiful walled gardens are as old as the original house, laid out in the Elizabethan era and with a continuous display from spring to autumn. There is also a Toy Museum, and Garden Restaurant serving a delicious selection of hot and cold lunches, plus a bundle of sweet treats. The superb Gift Shop is open daily all year as is the Porcupine Pantry Cafe, both of which can be found at the Visitor Entrance.
