  • Great day out, lovely house and gardens. Victorian Christmas to Antique Roadshow, art workshops, etc, there is often something on. Food in the restaurants better when there isn't a big event. Pricey for what it is though. Added to the entrance fee if you're not a member, it can be on the expensive side for families, but it's going to a good cause. Become members of the English Heritage and bring a picnic is a way to really get value out of it.
  • The house is beautiful and so is the gardens but I feel the price is a tad steep. But a good day out to have picnics on the grounds a play ground for the kids and a lot of history to be learned.
  • Beautiful house and Gardens, videos on my YouTube channel. Well maintained gardens are magnificent in summer. Cream teas to die for.
  • I went to audley end on holiday I liked the house and gardens .
  • Had a lot of fun at the Capability Brown weekend-really lovely gardens and a fun and informative tour of the grounds.
