Days Out in the East Of England

Audley End House and Gardens

From ‘secret’ gardens, ideal for walks, to some of England's grandest stately homes, the East of England is packed with top properties and days out this season.

We have now switched to our winter opening hours, meaning that while many properties are open at weekends and are running events for all, there may be restricted access during the week. Please check opening times before travelling.
