Audley End is a breathtaking property near Saffron Walden. It is a Jacobean property built between 1603 and 1614. Polish soldiers received secret training here during WWII.
If you are an English Heritage member, you can enter this property for free. It has an amazing garden and you can just imagine women as seen in Pride and Prejudice strolling around.
It also has a Service Wing that shows how hard the servants worked to maintain the house. Such as it would take a week for one piece of laundry to go through the cleaning system. Do you think it takes forever to do your laundry now?
There is also a Stable Yard that holds a multimedia exhibition. It also has an Organic kitchen Garden that was created in the 18th Century.
It is a great day out for the children as well, with plenty of space for them to run around and has a play area to keep them busy.
I like it because it is such as beautiful property and so close to the area. It is worth going here.
It is a great day out, bring a picnic, take a tour of the house and enjoy the serene surroundings.
