Penshurst Place - A new time-travel themed maze for 2018.

The #PenshurstMaizeMaze is back once again with a brand new design challenge. This year the maze has been cut in the shape of one of Penshurst Place’s ornate clocks, which legend has it, also possesses time travel properties!

Open daily from 14th July – 2nd September, the Maze will be ready and waiting for you to discover its concealed corridors and corners hidden within, and this year visitors will need to search for clues and riddles to help the clock continue on its time travel adventures to different centuries and eras!
This eco-friendly family fun can be enjoyed daily throughout the summer and is suitable for all the family, taking around 40 minutes to complete. Though all forming part of a larger design the #PenshurstMaizeMaze actually includes three different game challenges, a mini-maze perfect for younger adventurers offering a shorter 15 minute journey, a puzzler route including a game more suitable for older children and adults, and a family maze perfect for children of all ages to find their way through, collecting stamps as they go. Don’t worry if you get a little lost on your journey - stewards are available to assist and guide anyone requiring a little extra help or clues!
Fun for all the family
With something to offer all the family at this historic House and Gardens, Penshurst Place has a fabulous traditional adventure playground, woodland trail, picnic area, and a great range of delicious ice creams! They will also be running their popular Summer Sunday events throughout the summer from 22nd July to 2nd September with falconry, storytelling, craft activities and more!

Described as "the grandest and most perfectly preserved example of a fortified manor house in all England", at the heart of Penshurst Place is the medieval Baron's Hall, built in 1341. The adjoining Staterooms contain a wonderful collection of tapestries, furniture, portraits, porcelain and armour.

Once the property of Henry VIII, Penshurst Place & Gardens has been the ancestral estate of the noble Sidney family since 1552 and is still owned by the same family today.

Surrounded by ancient parkland, the 11 acres of beautiful walled gardens are as old as the original house, laid out in the Elizabethan era and with a continuous display from spring to autumn. There is also a Toy Museum, and Garden Restaurant serving a delicious selection of hot and cold lunches, plus a bundle of sweet treats. The superb Gift Shop is open daily all year as is the Porcupine Pantry Cafe, both of which can be found at the Visitor Entrance.
