Maize Maze at The Toy Barn this summer

The Toy Barn in Sherborne will be running its first ever maize maze this summer. The maze will be open every day between 10am to 5pm (last entry into the maze at 3.30pm).

 Tickets are only available directly from the shop and cost £6 per person (under 3s free) or £20 per group (up to four people).
