We are delighted to announce that we have just welcomed our 100,000th visitor for 2017 as part of a group of six visitors.
The group was made up of friends Sara and Polly who live locally and have been visiting the railway since they were children themselves and today came with Sara’s Children Ottilie and Beatrix and Polly’s Children Skye and Micky
Their prize for being the lucky family was a gift voucher to spend in the shop and an extended family ticket for eight to use in 2018.
Audley End Miniature Railway was opened to the public by Lord Braybrooke in 1964 and follows a 1.5 mile track through the beautiful Capability Brown designed gardens and are filled with wildlife, teddy bears, fairies and elves for families to enjoy. You can see more of that on the miniature railway website here.
Speaking about their prize, Polly said “We love it here and come to all of the events. Our favourites are the Fairy Walk and Halloween so we will come back as a family for the Easter Event next year.”
Amanda Murray, owner of the Miniature railway and Lord Braybrooke’s daughter talking about the success of 2017 said “2017 has been a superb year and for us to have welcomed our 100,000th visitor proves that all of the team have worked incredibly hard. They have put on our best ever series of events and made it an amazing year all round. Sadly I lost my father this year, but he would have been incredibly proud and would have loved to see all these families here enjoying his creation together. We have huge plans for 2018 and would like to thank everyone in the area who has supported us and the people of Saffron Walden for working with us. We hope you all have an amazing Christmas break and look forward to welcoming you in 2018.”
