Exploring a Maze can be
Exciting and Great Fun
Do you remember the thrill of getting lost in your first maze? Like solving puzzles and getting out and about? Why not try finding a maze that is close to you and try it?
We love visiting National Trust places and recently we visited Speke Hall near Liverpool. This is a grand medieval Hall once set in huge grounds. However as Liverpool and the surrounding industrial area has grown the Hall now sits in a vibrant area full of business parks and light industry. But this only adds to its charm as it is a peaceful haven in the heart of an urban area!
When we arrived we visited the Hall and looked around its splendid rooms, Peakles was very interested in all the different objects we could see. We had a great day out but sometimes it is nice to get back outside and let the kids run off some of that energy! The gardens and play area were great but we also spied something quite new and Peakles was eager to explore!
Having Fun Exploring the Maze
The whole family enjoyed this maze which combined trees, gates and wooden walkways. Peakles was allowed some freedom to explore on her own and with her brother and soon we were all hopelessly lost!
The beauty of the maze at Speke Hall is two-fold. The wooden raised walkways mean that you can view everyone from up high. It was a great place for Peakles to go to when she was lost! She could see us and we were able to make our way towards her quickly and confidently. She soon worked out that hiding in the maze was a great game and caught us all out as when she managed to hide from us all!
The other wonderful thing about this particular maze are the gates. This is a simple idea where the gates can open or close off areas of the maze. This means that the National Trust can make six different mazes from the one shape!
This was so much fun that next year we plan on visiting a few more mazes next year!
