At the maze, they have built a maze on two acres of land, and we had great fun going through the maze. Even Ms. Maher tried going through it, even if she did get a little lost.
They also had plenty of other activities for us to enjoy, including a zip wire, a sand area, a smaller wooden maze, crazy golf and plenty of climbing and balancing frames. We even got to see some of the animals they had in the petting zoo.
We were really lucky. We were allowed to go through the front door of the house - normally everyone has to go in through the reception, but since there was a dinner being held for the European Parliament when we were there, security brought us through the main door instead.
We had a great time with Clare, our excellent tour guide, who brought us around the house, and helped us to answer some questions on the maths trail we had prepared to do around the house. Our favourite part of the tour was probable seeing the floating staircase - a staircase which isn't supported by anything under it. Clare, our guide, let us in on the secret of it though - when they were building the stairs they built the steps of the stairs deep into the wall so the wall is holding the stairs in place.
