If you're looking for something fun to do over the school summer holidays, an eight acre maize maze could provide hours of fun.

To mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, the award-winning Wistow Maze has been designed in the shape of the Coronation Crown, using GPS satellite technology.

At the end of the season the maize crop is harvested for cattle fodder.

The giant 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, each one showcasing great innovations during the Queen's reign.

“Never before has a British Monarch reigned for 70 years, and we wanted to celebrate this historic event,” said Diana Brooks, owner of Wistow Maze.

With plenty of space, the maze offers great outdoor entertainment for young and old.
