Explore the world's oldest hedge maze

Possibly the most famous maze in the world, Hampton Court Maze is not particularly difficult, but it is one of the oldest surviving hedge maze still in operation.

The maze was originally part of a network of paths and labyrinths that made up William III's 'Wilderness Garden', planted around 1690 by George London and Henry Wise. It covers a third of an acre and contains around half a mile of paths.

The maze is open from 10am until 6pm (last admission 5.15pm) in summer, whilst in winter it closes at 4pm. Tickets are available either in combination with the rest of Hampton Court at around £13 or separately for less. For more information, visit the website at http://www.hrp.org.uk/HamptonCourtPalace/maze.aspx.

Trains run from Waterloo to Hampton Court regularly. Click here to see the location on a map.
