More revelations of a fascinating past at Audley End House

Saffron Walden, Herts

Step behind the scenes at Audley End House, a magnificent house built to entertain royalty, and find out how life was in Victorian times.


The doors of this restored historic stables have opened, complete with resident horses and a Victorian groom.

The stables experience includes an exhibition where you can find out about the workers who lived on the estate in the 1880s. Try their dressing up clothes in the stables and meet their horses.

Children will enjoy the themed play area next to the Cart Yard Café. Other experiences include the Victorian Service Wing complete with kitchen, laundries and a dairy and of course the working Organic Kitchen Garden.

Don’t miss the 1830s nursery, where the 3rd Lord Braybrook’s eight children would have lived from the age of four at a time when aristocratic children were rarely seen or heard by their parents.

With beautiful grounds to get lost in, there’s so much to see and do at Audley End House.
