Thinking of building your own labyrinth or maze and not sure where to begin?
Need help with design ideas, thoughts on suitable materials or locations?
Labyrinthos has been involved with the design, construction and restoration of numerous labyrinths and mazes over the years and can provide advice on all aspects of the process, assistance with design choices and suggestions for construction materials. Based in England, but working internationally, we specialize in replicas and adaptations of historic labyrinths and mazes, as well as more contemporary styles, and can also provide documentation for proposals & plans, measurements and instructions for layouts, etc.
