Audley End

Audley End, the finest Jacobean mansion in Essex, reopened yesterday with new features, part of a £1.1m project to extend visitor access. The nursery suite is open to the public for the first time. Shown is a photo of Audley End House and Gardens. In the days when I was a member of English Heritage I visited Audley End a number of times free of charge and can heartily recommend it. If you're not a member, the cost is steep: adults £15.40, silver surfers £13.90, families £40, but it would make a perfect day out over the Easter holidays. Just burn up the M11 to Saffron Walden (CLICK). There is also the Audley End Miniature Railway, Lord Braybrooke’s private 10 ¼” gauge railway, which offers rides through estate woodland for £5 adults or £4 children. This year it won Best Family Attraction in Essex for a small venue (CLICK).
