A rapidly growing city, Chelmsford was the home of light engineering war production during WWII and had its fair share of bomb related trouble during the era. Today, it is a growing commuter belt with many people from the greater London area relocating to this vibrant Essex city.
Surrounded by a huge number of charming villages, Chelmsford is a wonderful place to relax and unwind. There are some 1,507 acres of parks for visitors to enjoy while both the River Can and River Chelmer flow through its lush green landscape.
Sport lovers have a huge variety of sporting goodness to get stuck into as well. These include boxing, cricket, football and roller-skating while water lovers are also covered with angling, sailing and canoeing all on offer during a visit to Chelmsford.
