In pictures: An enchanting display lights up Audley End House and Gardens





Thousands of visitors enjoyed Enchanted, a magical display of illumination, sound and colour, which was open at Audley End House and Gardens until yesterday (Friday, December 30).

Visitors entered a fairytale landscape at the grounds of the stately home near Saffron Walden, which had been transformed into a winter wonderland.
