We had never visited here before despite knowing the town. A lovely garden, even more so on a beautifully sunny day. Restored between 2005 and 2008. Informative small visitor centre within the garden showing the history and restoration of the garden, listed Grade II. Francis...More

The maze is fun for the kids, the park is divided into different parts. Short walk from Saffron Walden town centre.

Being tucked away, it's easy to forget about Bridge End Gardens; however, it's worth visiting periodically to remind oneself what a gem we have here. Despite the time of year, the gardeners and volunteers continue to beaver away pruning and tidying the gardens after a...More

A delightful spot, could easily be missed. Good parking, lovely walks and seating, can attract young groups who are there for the wrong reasons!

Yes, a lot of people walk their dogs in the gardens and in the park next door. ISTR there are some taps for watering the gardens from which you could get water for dogs too.
