Saffron Walden is a market town located in north Essex, approximately equidistant between Bishops Stortford and Cambridge. There has been a market in the town since 1141 and it continues to operate in the square every Tuesday and Saturday. It was voted the “Best Small Outdoor Market” in 2018.
The town has a wealth of historic buildings which are best seen on foot by following the Town Trail. An undoubted highlight is the mediaeval Walden Castle which has undergone extensive repairs in recent years. There’s also a museum next door to the castle for those interested in digging further into the town’s history.
The town has something of an obsession with mazes – there are four in total, two of which are historic, and the town even has an occasional maze festival. The turf maze on the common is the largest example of its type in the world and is one of only eight surviving turf mazes in the country.
Schools would not normally be amongst a town’s attractions but not many schools have a cinema and award winning concert hall. The 740 seat Saffron Hall was added to Saffron Walden County High School in 2013 at a cost of £10 million. The cinema, which is also open to the public, is run on a not for profit basis by local volunteers.
The town no longer has a train station, the branch line closed in 1964, but Audley End Station is located approx. a mile to the west from where direct trains run to London (Liverpool Street) and Cambridge.
