Something different to do - and great fun 5 out of 5 stars

York Maze is a fun day out for all the family. It's the biggest maze in the UK, made from maize plants. You can spend hours wandering around the maze! When I went there with my friends, it was Halloween and they also had several 'haunted houses' set up on site. It was really spooky wandering around the maze with everyone wearing scary fancy dress costumes. It wasn't cheap to attend, but it was the best Halloween ever!


Dog friendly, and a complete day out 5 out of 5 stars

First off a warning, you will need a whole day for this gem of an attraction! When they said the largest maze in Europe, I actually thought it couldn't be that bad, but we got lost every couple of minutes which for little one was great fun! There's also a very nice play area there that keeps the kids entertained whilst having lunch and a sit down from all of the exploring. The longest maze for us to complete was the Maze of Illusions but that is because little one was too interested in all of the different illusions. Overall, it is definitely a good day out, with excellent value for money.
