Alongside the river Avon lies a small garden labyrinth, created by one of England's most prolific labyrinth designers. The paving stone maze weaves around a mosaic centre and is a favourite with younger children. Although called a maze, the design is technically a labyrinth. Unlike a maze which has a branching pattern a labyrinth has only a single line woven back and forth. True labyrinths are impossible to get lost in so you can go in any direction you choose and eventually reach the place where you began.
The Beazer Garden is named after the Bath-based construction company who donated the land, and the labyrinth was designed by maze designer and “labyrinthologist” Randoll Coate in 1984. He designed over 50 mazes in England, all of which are known for their hidden symbolism.
The Beazer Maze is inspired by the city’s Georgian architecture, as well as Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s railway designs, and is centered on a large Roman-inspired mosaic. Its central location makes it a perfect stop for families to come and enjoy the city.
