The Maze & Gardens

Priory Maze

Can you find your way out?

Planted in the late 80’s, this 7 foot tall maze is based on the adjacent ruins of Beeston Priory.

The copper beech copies the layout of the priory and the hornbeam infills create the maze.

As this is not a symmetrical maze, there is no middle, instead there is a viewing platform giving visitors a chance to try and plot their way out.

Areas for Kids

Other than finding their way through the maze, you can tire your little ones out by crawling through hobbit holes and racing down slides by the Meadow Stream Garden.
