The solidly attractive yellow-brick station buildings at Audley End welcome travellers to the leafy Essex village of Wenden Ambo, but this is also the railway connection for the larger town of Saffron Walden. Trains to Audley End include regular services to Cambridge and London Liverpool Street, as well as hourly connections to Stansted Airport and Birmingham New Street via Peterborough and Leicester. The station is named after Audley End House, a 17th-century manor house that is a few miles north of the station, between the railway and Saffron Walden. The house and gardens are open daily for visits, and there is a nearby miniature railway that runs through the grounds. Saffron Walden High Street and the surrounding streets, where you will find the main shops and services of the town as well as the Tourist Information Office, is linked to the station via a twelve-minute bus ride.
