We went to Audley End as we wanted to go for a nice walk and some lunch on our way travelling home from a UK holiday. We thought it would be a good place to take the dog for a nice walk as saw a lot of reviews that said it was dog friendly and so were the cafes.

We were flabbergasted at the gates when we were told that it would cost us £75 (!!!!) for 2 adults and 1 concession. This was despite the fact we wouldn’t be allowed in the house because of having the dog with us - there was no option to buy a gardens only ticket and you also couldn’t even access the coffee shop or toilets without paying either.

The walk around the grounds and the house is lovely but I absolutely wouldn’t recommend going if you just fancy a nice walk.

Not to mention a few paninis and coffees from the coffee shop also cost about £30! So £100 down for a walk and coffee - it’s really not worth the time!

Beautifully laid out interesting home . Disappointed one couldn’t take photos inside the house, not suitable for those with mobility issues many stairs. Gardens so nice

We had looked to this visit, but we are left sadly disappointed. The wonderful main attraction, the Capability Brown landscape now has a car lark in the middle of it! Spoit forever. There is no sign or mention of the Walden Abbey heritage, nor of the centuries of evolution of the house. Add to that a dismal cafe, no photography allowed, £50 entry for two, and no free guidebook.

We will never ever go back, and recommend that you also do not do. Waste of time, money and worst of all, a waste of heritage.

I agree with a previous reviewer, Rachel: this is a terrific building with some really important portraiture, but everything is very let down by an appalling lack of information. Unless, possibly, you buy a guidebook on top of the £50 plus for 2 people you have already given over to enter. English Heritage chooses to foreground the everyday lives of Victorian inhabitants (in a very basic way), whilst almost completely neglecting the site’s important role as an abbey, its history during the Reformation, and who the paintings that festoon the walls are of (unless you carry round a tatty series of sheets to identify them). Staff can be knowledgeable, but one basically gave us a leaflet and told us to get on with it when we had questions. The cafe is slow service-wise and poorly laid out - we left - and putting a car park right in the middle of the most important Capability Brown vista (from the front of the house to the temple on the rise in the field beyond) is a complete joke. The only saving grace was the terrific walled kitchen garden. We were asked multiple times during the trip if we would like to join English Heritage: based on this experience, no.

The house and grounds are very good, definitely worth a visit. The staff were all lovely and helpful while we were there. Why it did not get a 5 star rating from us was the main cafe. If you want cake then great but otherwise a poor selection and slow service. Shame as it put a dampener on otherwise a very nice day.

Enjoyed the plant stalls , very friendly and knowledgeable vendors. However wifi was so poor few vendors could use their contactless payment cards! Everyone was scrambling to draw cash from the machine !!! Machine charged for withdrawals and was empty when i tried to use it. Felt very sorry for vendors losing out on many needed sales. I would have bought more if card option was available.
Parking ….. still furious about this . Pre paid for parking . Queued for atleast half hr to get in , the town roads were gridlocked by the cars waiting to try to get in to event. Parking was a free for all, no one asking for parking fee When I tried to enquire re refund for pre payment I got passed around by BBC and Audley with no response ! Parking is a huge field , if you have mobility issues be aware it s a long walk into the house and gardens. Queue time to get in robbed us if nearly an hour at the event which closed at 4pm. House and Gardens lovely . Staff in House and Garden all friendly. Advice ! Don t pre pay for parking! Take cash ! Take food and drinks unless you don t mind rather high prices. Due to lack of helpful response after the event won t personally go again . Hope they have seperate high speed entrance for ambulance , otherwise you ll die waiting for assistance in my opinion ! #Nurse

A review of two halves - but I have first to thank staff for retrieving and keeping safe my wife's handbag and car keys which she left in the toilets at the start of our visit!

The house itself is excellent, one of the most sumptuously-ceilinged houses we've ever seen. Room after room had the most ornate ceilings - a sign of the wealth and importance of the owners. Guides generally were extremely knowledgeable, having a host of minor facts at their fingertips - and there seemed to be staff everywhere. On a nicer day, and with more time, it would have been great to explore the grounds, but the great benefit of English Heritage membership of course is that you can just drop in (assuming you live reasonably near by!) even for just half an hour. Sadly not easily possible for us, as we live a considerable distance away and this happened to be on our way home from elsewhere.

Some of the 'minor' items are what let the visit down, to be honest. On arriving we received what appeared to be really complex guidance as to where everything was, and how to park; I asked about dropping my wife off as she was not able to walk long distances and was told we could drop off by the front entrance, really helpful. But it would have been good if there had been disabled parking space much closer to the house, as she (and I!) had to walk all the way back to the fairly distant car park at the end of our visit. National Trust always offers buggy rides for disabled visitors, at least to and from a car park.

The separate guide book (and the free initial guide) are not very helpful at actually showing you where you are in the house - you do have to work at it! Very few of the rooms have substantial guidance information within them - listing, for example, all of the paintings or objects in the cabinets or on display. It was really frustrating seeing everything numbered, but no easy way to see what the items were. The laundry and dairy, too, have very limited signage by items indicating what they were, how they were used. Some of the rooms had clear signs as to what they were, but not others. We would have liked far more 'social history' information - how many staff, how much were they paid, what was the hierarchy, etc, etc.

The guidebooks would have been so much more effective if they had been written in collaboration with a first-time visitor - questions such as 'what's that, where did it come from, who used it, etc’ could have been addressed. By contrast the nursery has an excellent film showing how it was used and changed over the years. In a few other places the 'films' are very basic.

Finishing the house at around 2.30 we went to the cafe, only to find they stop serving hot meals at 2pm - no mention of this anywhere! There is a note on the front of the house indicating last admission there at 2pm, but it would have been good to add the food situation. We’d planned on having a good late lunch before our 3-hour drive home… They talk of lavish and excellent food - well, nothing hot, and the cream scone my wife bought was days old and completely stale. It was willingly changed for a cheese scone... extremely noisy in the cafe - and not only from visitors! Extremely loud and repeated banging from behind the serving counter...
We’d certainly return, but these are frustrating annoyances to what should otherwise have been a really good day.

Fantastic Jacobean house with great gardens. Lots to see inside the house with friendly and knowledgeable staff who brought the house to life. Had lunch in the cafe which had a lot of choice and good quality. Parking is not ideal but I think they are working on this. An absolute must for English Heritage members and for those wanting to see one of Englands great houses and gardens.

The place has an interesting history - it used to be three times larger than it is today and it is not small! Some nice portraits, a beautiful library, an impressive hallway and a vast garden. But at 25 pounds per person plus transportation to get there it may not be worth it for everyone. The village nearby, Saffron Walden, is magnificent and free of charge.

This should have been good. The house looks amazing and the rooms are well presented but it wasn’t. There was a huge lack of information about the house and the staff (with a couple of exceptions) didn’t seem to know much either. There were no helpful lists of paintings in the rooms and visitors were asked not to take photos. This seemed purely to sell guidebooks as no explanation was provided. Worse followed as the staff we so keen to.close that we felt rushed even though the closure time was 30-45 minutes away both in the house, tea room and garden. The staff need training at customer service for sure! Fortunately we were EH members but this has made us reconsider this. Certainly the entrance fee is overblown. Great house ruined by lack of friendly info and poor staff.
