One of ‘This is Kent’s’ top 10 things to do in Kent, get yourselves lost in a field of maize - lots of eco-fun for all the family!
This year we've created our Maize Maze with a time travel theme, and you'll be able to spot the clock we used as inspiration in the Long Gallery! Wind your way through a giant clock face as you collect clues from different historical eras hidden in the maze. Once you have collected all the clues, you'll be able to crack the puzzle and be in with the chance of winning a Penshurst Place family season ticket!
Taking around 40 minutes to complete in most cases, the eco-friendly maze is great fun for children and adults alike. Those with a competitive side can take advantage of a new tactical maze that requires any explorers that take it on to collect the clues in the right order to crack the code!
For your chance to win a family season ticket, bring along your cameras or smartphones, take a selfie in the maze and post it on social media, with the hashtag #PenshurstMaizeMaze. The selfie competition will run until 9th September 2018, with winners announced via Twitter and Facebook a week later. The family season ticket, worth £78, gives holders access to the stately home, its 11 acres of gardens, the adventure playground and parkland for a whole year.
Children need to be accompanied by an adult, and maze stewards will be on hand if anyone needs a bit of help finding their way. Entrance to the Maize Maze is included in the standard garden entry ticket prices and is £2 for those entering using an RHS or Gardener’s World membership card. The maze is open every day during the summer, from 11:00am to 6pm, with last entry at 5pm.
