The medieval market town of Saffron Walden is a 14 mile drive from The Carpenters Arms. The streets are lined with history and wonky, timber framed houses, painted in Suffolk pink, yellows and blues!
The town's market has been held in the square since 1141, winning best small outdoor market in 2018 no held on Tuesdays and Saturdays. There is plenty to explore in the town, from The Fry Art Gallery, to exploring the many mazes, to wandering around the beautiful Bridge End Gardens - if you decide to visit the gardens be sure to pop in for a drink next door at our sister pub, The Eight Bells.
Close by you will also find the stunning Audley End mansion and estate - the miniature railway is always a hit with the little ones!
