Audley End House and Gardens
This Christmastime join with friends and family to explore the grounds of Audley End after dark as we open up a winter fairy-tale of light, colour and sound. Strings of lanterns laced through the boughs of trees and fairy lights twinkling behind leaves will lead you along an enchanting garden trail into a magical wonderland.
Follow the trail and experience Audley End's heritage in a remarkable new light. Frolic with the 'escaped wildlife' running wild in the gardens, celebrate in style under ornate chandeliers and listen to the blissful sounds of choral music representing the Benedictine priory which once stood in place of today's mansion.
Children will be delighted by the dolls house-sized characters inspired by the nursery and their imagination illuminated in the shadow puppet theatre.
The experience doesn't end when the trail does. Emerging into the cosy stable yard, enjoy atmospheric entertainments to take you back to times gone by. There will be plenty to enjoy besides - from mince pies and mulled wine, to Christmas shopping at our heritage-inspired shop.
So get wrapped up warm, with camera at hand and tastebuds ready to be indulged and make the most of this sparkling event. It promises to be a popular evening.
