Chelmsford is located around 30 miles northeast of London, and its existence dates back to the 13th century. It is also considered by many to be the birthplace of radio. Some of the places to visit in Chelmsford include the cathedral, the Shire Hall, Admiral’s Park, and Central Park, where you will find a lake and a beautiful nature reserve. Commuting is also a breeze, as there is a train that goes to London from the town’s main railway station - which dates back to the 19th century. Accommodations here are warm and cozy and are relatively inexpensive. Read below for more information on these places to stay in Chelmsford.
