Audley End

    History is vividly brought to life at Audley End House and Gardens in Saffron Walden, Essex. One of the top sights of East Anglia, Audley End is an eye-catching stately home, based in astonishing grounds. Visitors throughout the year cannot only see the grand house and estate, they can also explore the service wing, stables and nursery as costumed characters allow people to experience Life Above and Below Stairs every weekend until the end of September. As well as Mrs Crocombe in the kitchen and Mrs Warwick in the house, the popular groom will be inviting visitors to experience a day in the life of a busy Victorian stable yard complete with real horses, dressing up and have-a-go grooming.
