A visit to the Mazes is a great way to spend a day with the family and enjoy the great summer weather. Why not bring the kids along during the summer holidays? We also have special events throughout the summer – see our events pages for details. Coming up soon is our “It’s a Dog’s Day” event. Have you ever wondered what a Dog Day is? – well it’s a time during the Summer when Sirius (the Dog Star) rises at the same time as the sun. This happens in early August – so Dog Days are often associated with hot weather.
