Audley End

Audley End is just 12 miles north of The Jolly Brewers by road, or there is a direct rail link from Bishops Stortford to Audley End. It dates from the time King Henry VIII when it was transformed into one of England’s grandest country homes. Now owned by English Heritage it has over 30 lavishly decorated rooms for the visitor to enjoy and explore. The sumptuous interior is filled with treasures including paintings by Old Masters such as Holbein and Canaletto, and a rare set of English tapestries by Soho weaver Paul Saunders. The grounds are an extensive park land for you to wander round, including the beautiful 19th-century parterre with its magnificent floral displays where you can imagine yourself back in Victorian times as you take a turn around the organic walled Kitchen Garden growing original fruit and vegetable varieties.

The grounds also house a miniature steam railway and offer a superb natural theatre for various staged music concerts and other events.

The Jolly Brewers Travel Lodge provides ideal accommodation for an overnight stay at the end of the day after a visit to Audley End to view the house and grounds or to attend concerts and event.
