'It is the most famous Maze in the history of the world, and immeasurably the one most visited' Ernest Law, 1926
Tackling a hedge maze conjures up feelings of grand adventure, of tackling the impossible and only you can triumph, of cracking the puzzle and defeating the Minotaur at its heart. It's the impenetrable Labyrinth. You think of Labyrinth the film and all those wonderful childhood memories of imaginary epic battles between good and evil. Or is that just me?!
Hampton Court's famous Maze is the oldest surviving hedge maze in the UK, commissioned by William III around 1700. Surely a Maze as old as this must have a rather wonderful magical draw to it... and it does.
