The new maze, at Cliveden, has been re-created using over 1,000 two metre-high yew trees. It is based on one that was designed for Lord Astor in 1894 but had ceased to be maintained since the mid-1900s.
It has taken two years to create, using more than 1,000 metres of steel edging and 120 tonnes of gravel to produce 500 metres of path over one third of an acre.
Cliveden's head gardener Andrew Mudge said: "The maze will take a little while to really establish itself and fill out, but it’' fantastic that people can enjoy it straight away.
"And don't worry, you can't cheat by pushing through the hedges because they are all enclosed by metal railings."
Cliveden's stunning gardens receive more than 250,000 visitors every year.
