Experience the house as it would have been lived in by the Braybrooke family. Children's stories are brought to life in the nursery suite, enter Lady Braybrooke's rooms after she returns from an evening out, and discover the innovative coal gallery.

Great houses need an army of staff to keep everything running smoothly, and you can meet Audley's in the Victorian Service Wing, stables and nursery. See them at work weekends throughout June – September. Say hello to our resident horses in the stable block and take a visit to the Organic Walled Kitchen Garden as you discover hundreds of heritage fruits and vegetables.

Emerge into grounds remodelled by the renowned garden designer, Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown. 2016 marks the 300th anniversary of his birth. Join us as we celebrate his work at Audley End with a series of events and new exhibitions from April onwards.

With parterre gardens, ‘Capability’ Brown landscaped parkland, a children’s play area, café and shop, make it a day out for all the family at Audley End House & Gardens.
