Audley End’s walled kitchen garden is not to be missed, running entirely on organic principles and including grape vines in the glasshouses and an array of produce.

Meet the Gardeners

The English Heritage gardens team and volunteers will be out and about sharing growing tips and talking to visitors about the plants found in the gardens.
