With summer in full swing a great way to spend the warm afternoons is by exploring the maize mazes the county has to offer.

The annual tourist attractions are cut from a large field of maize or corn and are often filled with other things of interest such as mini games and puzzles. 

A pair of Suffolk maize mazes will be up and running to get lost in this summer. 

1. Southwold Maize Maze

The well-known attraction near the coastal town of Southwold is opening its maize maze from July 20 until September 8.

Up until the maize maze opens visitors can still go and enjoy the play park from Fridays to Sundays until July 14. 

Go karts will also be returning when the maze reopens and other activities on site include three jumping pillows, a double zip line and ride on tractors.

The Old Hall Southwold Cafe will also be open for breakfast, lunch and other refreshments.
