To mark the 50th anniversary of the first man to walk on the moon, the award-winning Wistow Maze has been designed in the shape of an Astronaut.  This is a great way to celebrate the most memorable leap for mankind, when Neil Armstrong successfully stepped out of Apollo 11 and landed on the moon.

The giant eight-acre maize maze has a fun Quiz Trail hidden amongst its three miles of pathways, with high level bridges and towers giving stunning panoramic views.  Visitors have to find 12 quiz boards which will test their knowledge on other historic achievements.

Visitors can also take part in a variety of mini mazes and games in the Activity Funyard, which includes a space-hopper track, hoopla, beanbag throwing and a football shooting game.

Across the road is the Wistow Rural Centre with its cafe, garden centre, art gallery, model village and numerous shops, making it a great day out for all ages.

Wistow Maze is a winner of Leicestershire’s “Best Visitor Attraction” and attracts over 20,000 visitors each year.

Wistow Maze is open seven days a week, starting on the actual anniversary of the moon landing: Saturday 20th July to Sunday 1st September, then weekends only until Sunday 22nd September.

Admission charges: child £5.95,  adult £6.95 or a family ticket (2+2) £24. Open: 10am - 6pm. Free parking.
