 To mark the 70th anniversary of the NHS, the award-winning Wistow Maze has been designed in the shape of an Ambulance.

This year we wanted to show our appreciation for the many heroes in the health and emergency services, says Diana Brooks, owner of Wistow Maze.

The giant eight-acre maize maze has a fun Quiz Trail hidden amongst its three miles of pathways, with high level bridges and towers giving stunning panoramic views. Visitors have to find 12 quiz boards which will test their ‘First Aid’ skills and how to treat a casualty!

Visitors can also take part in a variety of mini mazes and games in the Activity Funyard, which includes a space-hopper track, hoopla, beanbag throwing and a football shooting game. Across the road is the Wistow Rural Centre with its cafe, garden centre, art gallery, model village and numerous shops, making it a great day out for all ages. Wistow Maze is a winner of Leicestershire’s “Best Visitor Attraction” and attracts over 20,000 visitors each year.
