Last Saturday we went to Audley End House in Saffron Walden. We explored the libraries (my favourite), the chapel and the great hall. There were people in each room who were ready to answer questions and tell you more about the history of Audley End House. We even bumped into a few ‘characters’ who had taken on the roles of house staff. It felt like we were in a period drama.
After a cold drink we left the house to explore the gardens for a few hours. It was a very hot day and lots of people were having picnics and relaxing in the shade of the big trees. I’ll definitely be doing that next time I go. I think this is a perfect place for a summer holiday day trip – there’s lots going on for little ones and the grounds are simply stunning.
You can find prices and opening times over on the website.
Sorry it’s such a quick post today. I just really wanted to share these photos with you.
