Roald Dahl's BFG Comes to Wistow

To mark the centenary of Roald Dahl’s birth, Leicestershire’s famous Wistow Maze has been designed in the shape of one of his best loved characters, the “BFG (Big Friendly Giant). 

“Roald Dahl had such an impact on children’s imagination with his extraordinary stories and characters, so to celebrate we are highlighting both his work and that of other famous children’s authors” explains Diana Brooks, owner of Wistow Maze. 

The maze features 3 miles of intricate pathways carved through 8 acres of living corn, with high level bridges and towers giving fabulous panoramic views. 

The challenge is to find 12 quiz boards hidden in the giant maze. Each quiz board has a multiple choice question on a classic children’s book, which will help to unravel the answer to the quiz trail, whilst also providing interesting facts about the authors and their stories. 

It includes an Activity Funyard with mini mazes and games for all ages, including hoopla, a space hopper track and football shooting game. 

Opposite is the Wistow Rural Centre with its cafe, garden centre, art gallery, model village and numerous shops, making it a great family day out. 

The Wistow Maze is a winner of Leicestershire’s “Best Visitor Attraction” and attracts over 20,000 visitors each year.
