English Turf Labyrinths Tour

Provisional Date: TBA


A unique opportunity to visit England's historic turf labyrinths, see the best of the unusual Victorian church and cathedral labyrinths and visit one of the finest hedge mazes in England.

With pickup options from either London Gatwick or Heathrow airports, we spend our first three nights in cosy bed & breakfast accommodation just down the road from the atmospheric turf labyrinth at Breamore, on the edge of the New Forest.

From there we will visit the turf labyrinth at Winchester, a church labyrinth nearby and the remarkable Watts Chapel, with an option to visit either Stonehenge or the monuments around Avebury. Travelling northward to central and eastern England, we stop at Somerton to see the unique Troy-Town turf labyrinth, on the way to our next base in the village of Wing, where we stay in a 17th century inn, a short stroll from the beautifully preserved turf labyrinth on the village green.

From here we will visit the labyrinth on the village green at Hilton and the pavement labyrinth in Ely Cathedral, where we you will have the chance to walk on the roof of the cathedral - weather and vertigo permitting! Travelling north, we visit the dramatically situated turf labyrinth at Alkborough before returning to London Stansted airport (with rail and coach connections into central London, and many flight connections onwards to Europe) via the historic market town of Saffron Walden, with its unique turf labyrinth and restored hedge maze.

An epic labyrinthine journey through the scenic English countryside at its springtime best.
