Welcome to Saffron Walden

Saffron Walden is a large market town in Essex, with a market held every Saturday. 

The town has recently ranked as one of the UK’s most popular shopping destinations!

Audley End stately home sits 1.5 miles away, and it is great for sightseeing. If this gem is not enough for you then The Bridge End Garden is nearby also.

Did you Know: After the Norman Invasion in 1066 a stone church was built. You can see the remains of Walden Castle, build on the foundations to this day!
