Visit to Audley End House

Five members of ‘Histeria’ the London based group of writers of historical fiction for children, had a lovely day out at Audley End House in Essex on 21st August.  A wander round the beautiful grounds, a break for lunch, then a tour of the splendid Jacobean house.  I particularly enjoyed seeing the king’s bedroom (all ready for George 3rd who, sadly, never made it there) and the delicate and intricate Adam ceilings in the reception rooms downstairs.  We ended the day with tea and sponge cake at my house which is close by.
