Christmas celebrations are well underway around the pretty market town of Saffron Walden, with a great choice of activities for the whole family.

‘Wintasia’ is new to the town’s common, with eco-ice rink, indoor fireplace and Santa’s Grotto set within Nordic teepees. After dark, the Avalanche bar offers party nights with street food vans and Prosecco on ice.

The beautiful English Heritage estate, Audley End House and Gardens, is even more spectacular at this time of year. Children can enjoy ‘An Audience with Father Christmas’, or step inside for an insight into the mansion’s history, as kitchen staff prepare dishes for the Victorian Christmas feast.
