Things To Do in Saffron Walden
Saffron Walden, mentioned in the Dooms Day Book of 1086, has many interesting buildings such as a 15th-century guildhall, alms houses, a highly-decorated listed house on Church Street and a splendid 12th-century church.
Walden Castle is now only ruins but you walk around it reading the information boards and imagine how it once looked. The museum next door comes with rave reviews and features a woolly mammoth amongst other great things.
Doggies cannot go inside sadly but there are pretty grounds where you can picnic together. There are 2 old mazes in Saffron Walden where man’s best friend can visit with you – the turf maze on the common is the largest of its kind and is of historical importance.
Audley End House is a Jacobean mansion with a beautiful garden created by Capability Brown. The kitchens, nursery and opulent rooms of this grand mansion can be toured, and doggies can be taken on a walk around the exquisite gardens where there are picnic benches so you can rest for a while.
Audley End Miniature Railway has lots of family fun and doggies are very welcome. There’s a fairy walk, a playground and of course the steam trains themselves. A gift shop and station signal box café complete the facilities on offer here.
In the surrounding area, there is Duxford, famous for its RAF museum with planes, buses and lots of historical artefacts.
Cambridge can be reached in 45 minutes, this delightful university town has lots to see including a museum, cobbled streets, shops galore, the river and The Backs nature reserve.
At Braintree, the Freeport Shopping Mall is the place to go for designer bargains – it’s an outlet centre that attracts shoppers from far and wide.
The delightful town of Saffron Walden is a gem in the Essex countryside. It’s within easy reach of London, Cambridge and Colchester, but there is plenty to see in this pretty town itself if you don’t want to venture too far.
Audley House is a magnificent Jacobean mansion worthy of a whole day’s visit if you enjoy English Heritage properties, and the Saffron Walden museum is crammed with interesting things to see as well.
Rose Cottage is the ideal holiday home to base yourself – it’s full of character and equipped with all the comforts of home.
