Yes, we aim to stay open in all weathers, although persistent heavy rain could make some of the maze features unsafe which would mean we would be forced to close for health and safety reasons. All ticket holders will be contacted in these circumstances. Some of the activities in the courtyard would be closed during rain showers, such as the trampolines.
The Maize Maze is a growing crop planted each year into a regular field. The paths are well prepared and free of stones, but solid footwear suitable for walking distances is advisable. Please dress appropriately for the weather conditions, if it is hot, do remember a sun hat, and if it looks like rain, a waterproof jacket.
We have port-a-loos within the the courtyard area (not within the maze itself). Additional facilities are located next to the Farm Shop.
Our baby changing facilities are located in the main toilet block next to the Farm Shop (approx 150 meters away).
No. Dogs are allowed in the overflow car parking areas but for hygiene reasons they are not allowed inside the maze with the exception of service dogs.

No. Millets is proud to be a smoke & vapour free area. Smoking and vaping is not permitted within the maze, courtyard or its surrounding areas.
Alcohol is not permitted in the maize during the day, however, during our torchlight nights, we are happy for adults to enjoy a drink responsibly in our courtyard area.
Maize is a tropical plant that can grow over 7ft tall? Find out more about our a-MAZE-ing mazes in the Maize Maze History tab above.
Our first ever Maize Maze was in 1997 and was the first one of its kind in the UK. People flocked far and wide to try it out and it even got into the Guinness World Records for being the first in the country.
Our original maze had 3.73 miles of pathways covering almost 8 acres – it took some visitors 4 hours to complete! We’ve since reigned it back a little bit to make it more manageable and it now covers an area of 6 acres and 2.5 miles. Phew!
