Penshurst Place and Gardens Maize Maze
Penshurst Place - a new Maize Maze for 2016
Visitors can join in with 2016, The Year of the English Garden when they take on the challenge of finding the hidden flowers in the maze in this year’s game, Bee Happy!
With a new flower-shaped design for 2016, intrepid gardeners must help the bees find the flowers hidden throughout the maze so they can collect their nectar and pollinate the plants.
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, with its game, Clock Watching, is perfect for younger adventurers, offering a shorter 15 minute 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! We will also be running our popular Summer Sunday events throughout the summer from 24th July to 28th August 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, which serves a delicious array of Costa Coffees and homemade cakes and savouries.
