The city of about 156,000 inhabitants, is located northeast of London, half an hour by train; and 45 minutes from Stansted Airport.
The county town of Essex lies at the confluence of the Can and Chelmer rivers. Being 30 miles from central London, Chelmsford has a population of travellers working in the city of London and Docklands, but has also been a large regional employer since Guglielmo Marconi established his Wireless Telegraph Company here.
For heritage, Hylands House is an eighteenth century villa on vast grounds that are open to the public as a country park, which welcomes the V Festival (now RiZE) since 1996. The renovated Chelmsford City Museum is a must, as is the Essex Police Museum, while a short trip will take you to the Tudor Ingatestone Hall and the perfect Royal Horticultural Society garden in Hyde Hall.
