£21.50 English Heritage
King Henry VIII gave Walden Abbey to Sir Thomas Audley, who transformed it into his mansion, Audley End. Despite ups and downs in its fortunes, Audley End remains one of England’s grandest country homes with over 30 lavishly decorated rooms to enjoy and explore. The sumptuous interior is largely due to the third Baron Braybrooke who inherited Audley End in 1825, filling it with treasures including paintings by Masters such as Holbein and Canaletto. Visit the working stable block and its horses. Activities include daily riding displays and horse grooming sessions. There are refreshment facilities and a shop. You may care to take a picnic to have in the gardens.
