STOP PRESS: The third Saffron Walden Maze Festival will take place from 19th to 21st August 2016. More details to follow in due course.
Saffron Walden is alone in the UK in having two historic mazes – the ancient turf labyrinth on the Common and the Victorian hedge maze in Bridge End Garden.
To celebrate Saffron Walden’s unique maze culture and explore man’s fascination with mazes and labyrinths over the centuries we held our first Maze Festival in August 2011 and the second one in August 2013 with mazes and maze challenges all over the town. In 2013 a third permanent maze was created in the bandstand in Jubilee Gardens.
