Chelmsford is Essex’s only city, and just a tiny hop from London, it’s spoilt with its own culture and amenities, whilst also benefitting from the capital city just down the road. Chelmsford has really made a name for itself as the country’s go-to spot for events. The Rize Festival continues to gain popularity, and of course we can’t mention Chelmsford without a nod to its racing calendar.
However, there’s more to Chelmsford, and you’ll find a smattering of fine architecture, or stumble upon a game of cricket, or get lost in the beauty of the gardens at RHS Hyde Hall. It’s a city spoilt for shopping choice, and it’s starting to becoming a foodie place to be.
