York Maze is just ten minutes from the centre of York and set in open countryside. From the A64 exit at the Grimston Bar roundabout (Hull A1079 and Bridlington) take the exit for Hull then turn immediately right on the B1228 towards Elvington and the Air Museum. Follow the road through a series of bends until you come onto a long straight. There are brown tourism signs for York Maze about half a mile down the straight on the right, you have arrived!
