Originally, Audley End House and Gardens was the site of Walden Abbey, which was converted into the grand house after King Henry VIII's Reformation during the 1530s. So, this is an old place! The grounds were eventually landscaped by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown.
Today you can visit these grounds as well as exploring the house, including the service wing and the horses in the stables. There is also a children's play area.
Audley End has been voted one of English Heritage's top ten family attractions by visitors.
