wonderful gardens

I had no idea that these gardens existed! A real pleasure to visit. Much larger than I was expecting.

At walking distance from the city centre. The touristic departement of the city has a small lay-out with a tour with all most important things to visit, including the bridge end garden. You can enter the garden through a small path (which also give entrance to the art gallery). The garden has a lovely box garden, a walled vegetable and... More

A lovely garden well worth a visit, very pretty in spring and no doubt even better in the summer and autumn. The maze had us beat at first but we returned to give it a second try and managed it, with a little help! The only down side to our visit was the state of the toilet pan, it was... More

The whole park was ablaze with colour and easy to access a real delight and the hedge maze was fun a lot of thought put into this garden

Bridge end gardens are a stunning representation of a traditional landscaped garden. With orchards and lawns as well as tranquility this is a magical escape from modern life. Additionally there is a maze at the end of the main garden. All free, although donations welcome. There is also an art gallery documenting a lot of local life.

The gardens here are beautiful, and the hedge maze is very fun! Although it's certainly very nice to have a walk through the gardens if you're nearby, I wouldn't say that it's worth travelling to Saffron Walden especially for them.

We stumbled across the gardens and were so surprised. For a Saturday evening it was very quiet and peaceful. Those that work there obviously take great care and pleasure with the gardens.

We were in the area, so the family decided to visit bridge end gardens, we found trying to find them a nightmare but eventually we asked someone who kindly gave us directions, the gardens themselves were quite small & were pretty basic in their design so we decided to go to the main park as there was a maze!!

Having visited the Fry Gallery (which you pass on the way to these lovely gardens), this was a "must" next stop. The gardens were larger and more varied than we expected. The only disappointment was that the maze was closed (don't know why). Not worth travelling especially to SW to pay a visit, but well worth it if you are... More

A well maintained and interesting garden worth visiting. It's a bit out of the way but worth the walk
