Saffron Walden Vlog

Welcome to my hometown! (Otherwise known as the best rural place to live in the UK).  While MrLondonMum was working in Oman last week filming for Oman Airways I took the opportunity to head home and reignite my childhood memories.  So let me share with you the delights of Saffron Walden…

This is our Town Hall, first built in 1761…

…and this beautiful church is the largest in Essex!

Just across from the church down this little path…

…you’ll find Bridge End Garden, which are Grade II listed gardens designed in a typical Victorian style (it even has its own maze!).

The Town has some beautiful pastel homes…

And because it’s such an old market town, many of the houses still have tiny doors from where our ancestors were just that bit shorter than today’s population! (with the exception of me).

Coming home means that Baby London gets to play with his cousin…

…and get spoilt by his Grandma…

…which he thoroughly enjoys!

Bath time does put him straight to sleep though.  Here he is with my sister.

Good thing his cousin had a moses basket nearby…

He didn’t quite fit in to it.  But he didn’t seem to notice…

Here’s a little VLOG of our day visiting Audley End House.  Enjoy!

  1. I love towns like this! There is always more character, like with the smaller doors. Bet baby London loved being spoilt by his Grandma. I’m Eliot prefers both his to me! X

    • It’s such a cute town, I didn’t really appreciate it growing up!
      Baby L has a weekend alone with my parents soon, he’ll be so spoilt! Good thing he isn’t old enough to be difficult yet 😉 xx,

  2. Ahhh, it looks like such a lovely place. I’ve never been, but it just looks so idyllic. Perfect in the sunshine too. And I adore Baby L’s little baby grow with the cars and trucks on… so cute!
