Maize Maze at The Toy Barn this summer

The Toy Barn in Sherborne will be running its first ever maize maze this summer. The maze will be open every day between 10am to 5pm (last entry into the maze at 3.30pm).

 Peter Hunt, owner of The Toy Barn, says: “Our maize maze is a great day out for all the family. Intrepid explorers must find their way to the castle in the centre through acres of corn, or face retracing their steps to find the correct route.”

Refreshments are available and children can play on The Toy Barn’s go-karts, climbing frames, trampolines and swings after exploring the maze.

 Tickets are only available directly from the shop and cost £6 per person (under 3s free) or £20 per group (up to four people).
