With its dramatic skyline of tall chimneystacks and fanciful octagonal turrets, Melford Hall is one of the finest and most satisfying Elizabethan houses in the East of England.
It stands beside the River Chad, at the northern end of Long Melford, a village noted for its wide village green leading up to the great perpendicular church.
King Henry VIII gave Walden Abbey to Sir Thomas Audley, who transformed it into his mansion, Audley End. Despite ups and downs in its fortunes, Audley End remains one of England’s grandest country homes with over 30 lavishly decorated rooms to enjoy and explore. The sumptuous interior is largely due to the third Baron Braybrooke who inherited Audley End in 1825, filling it with treasures including paintings by Masters such as Holbein and Canaletto. A rare set of English tapestries by Soho weaver Paul Saunders is now displayed after 30 years in store. Wander round the beautiful 19th-century parterre with its magnificent floral displays and imagine yourself back in Victorian times as you take a turn around the organic walled Kitchen Garden growing original fruit and vegetable varieties.
Newmarket is unique in the sport for being home to two international racecourses, each hosting world-class flat racing throughout the racing calendar.
In addition, during the summer months of June, July and August Newmarket plays host to fabulous race days including the July meeting which provides 3 days of top class racing. This opens with Ladies' Day, a combination of high fashion and high stakes.
