Nestled between London and Cambridge, Uttlesford cradles the historic towns of Saffron Walden, Thaxted and Great Dunmow.
With excellent links to London to the south and the historic city of Cambridge to the north, Uttlesford is an ideal base for the tourist, business executive or new resident. Across the district the market towns and villages provide a wide variety of shops, restaurants, cafés and attractions.
The district's main Tourist Information Centre is right on the Market Square in Saffron Walden. It is run by Saffron Walden Town Council. More tourism information is available at the Community Information Centres or visit the Tourist Information Centre's website to find out about things to do and places to stay in the area.
Many of the villages hold regular Farmer's Markets selling local produce. Open air markets are held weekly in Saffron Walden on Tuesdays and Saturdays, in Great Dunmow on Tuesdays and in Thaxted every Friday.
