The Mazes

York Maze is famous for the giant Maize Maze, the largest in Europe, but we also boast many other curious maze based attractions for you to puzzle over.

The giant “maize maze” is a living growing maze made from over 1 million maize plants covering an area larger than 8 Wembley football pitches!!

It is the largest maze in Britain, and one of the largest mazes in the world. But the puzzling fun doesn't end there.

You won't believe your eyes in the Maze of Illusions, you'll be on your knees in the Mineshaft Maze, and who knows what your future holds in the Finger Fortune Maze.

The mazes are just some of the 20+ attractions at York Maze, there is so much to do, you’ll be “a-maized”.
