Audley End House is a largely early 17th-century country house. It was once a prodigy house, a palace in all but name and renowned as one of the finest Jacobean houses in England. Audley End is now one-third of its original size, but is still large, with much to enjoy in its architectural features and varied collections. It is currently in the stewardship of English Heritage and long remained the family seat of the Lords Braybrooke.
This English Heritage property is only a short train ride from London's Liverpool Street station and is open to the public from April until the end of October, with an entrance fee of £17.50 (£10.50 for children).
Climb the stairs to the library and you'll find another key filming location.
