From Our Editors

From late July to September, visitors to the Thornton Abbey, a well-known medieval site in North Lincolnshire, have a chance to engage in a maze craze. Each year the abbey's gardeners plant maize throughout the property and then cut a giant maze out of the crops. Guests can get lost in the maze, solve the puzzles prepared by the organisers and enjoy refreshments available on site. Electric tractors are also available for children's rides.

It is not over commercialised and well maintained.

A nice day out, pleased to have done it with groupon as otherwise not enough for your money. Maze great, a trail to follow and clues to find. Some play bots for kids to use. Was good.

Good value for money overall. Maze was fun... BUT everybody struggled to find no. 4 whilst we were there which was quite disappointing. We were assured it did exist but none of us found it. Most of the quiz questions were very specialised about a particular make and model of a combine harvester which the average non farming person would not be able to answer so again that was disappointing.

This was an experience that offered less than I had anticipated. However the children had a great time. Some form of food on offer would be better.

It is very misleading with the pictures of promotion having Thornton Abbey on it as therefore people think a look round the Abbey is included! It is not. Very pricey for what it is! We had done it all in 30 mins.

A very well thought out maze with questions to answer along the way about farming etc. and a static tractor for the children to climb on at the end. There is also a separate field at the entrance where the children can play on things like large games of chess, duck racing, slide, bales of hay etc, small sit on tractors which you pay for. All in all an excellent day out for all the family.
