My guiding rule for mazes is to always take the option that seems to lead you further from the centre. Maze designers assume that you will always choose the route that promises to take you towards the centre, so be counter-intuitive. You will generally find that by choosing the outer option, you will find a path that leads you suddenly... More

I spent a pleasant half hour sitting in these gardens in spring sunshine without anyone else around. A unusual experience for me to have a quiet period of meditation and reflection. A lovely little spot of immaculate gardens and tranquility in the middle of a busy town

The Bridge End Gardens are not far from the Town Centre and a must see if visiting Saffron Walden. They are very well maintained and beautiful to wander around. We tried to find the centre of the maze but failed!

Spent an afternoon in these gardens with my 5 year old son. The yew maze was a great hit, we ended up it doing it 3 times and it's quite tricky!

Just about to go into the 8 bells for lunch and right next is this little gate to a fabulous garden with lots of different areas, even a maze. We couldn't find the middle and chickened out when we found the exit. Lunch calling.

The gardens were well kept and very tranquil to wander around. We were impressed at all the citrus fruit in the greenhouses. The maze was fun...we didn't get to the middle!!

Oasis of tranquility close to the centre of this beautiful small market town. The team obviously take pride in keeping the gardens spotless. My seven enjoyed loved getting lost in the maze and finally making it to the lookout tower. There is freedom to roam inside the greenhouses and views of the distant Church.

Bridge End gardens are the remains of a stately home gardens, providing a wealth of features. Herbaceous borders give way to a rose garden then a formal lawn, and much more. The informal areas are packed with daffodils and form a wonderful backdrop to the more formal areas.

These gardens are tended by an army of volunteers who give up their precious time to keep this area looking marvellous. On the day I visited with some friends we could see work going on in every section of the complex. We have promised ourselves to return in June to see the wonderful rose arbour which should look splendid at... More

Spent an extremely pleasant couple of hours in Saffron Walden. What a delightful place. Bridge End Gardens were meticulous. Not many flowers of course because of the time of year but there was a pleasant winter walk from the main road to the gardens, an informative visitor info centre, very clean toilets and a friendly gardener. Good now but it... More
