Art and culture
The town retains a rural appearance and many very old buildings dating from the medieval period onwards. Saffron Walden also features the ruins of the 12th-century Walden Castle. There is also a hedge maze in nearby Bridge End Garden. The garden, which lies off Castle Street and Bridge Street, dates from the 1840s.
Another tourist attraction is Audley End, the house and gardens are now owned by English Heritage and are open to the public. During the summer months concerts in the style of the BBC Proms are held here, typically an evening of music of diversity ranging from classical to rock to jazz followed by a fireworks display.
