Discover the historic city of Essex
Less than three miles from Great Baddow and you can find yourself in the only City of Essex, Chelmsford. With a wide variety of shopping, culture and great days out as well as the City of London just 34 minutes away via train from Chelmsford railway station there is plenty to keep you entertained.
The City of Chelmsford is home to two shopping centres offering the very best in high street shopping. There is also the retail park, Chelmer Village, just a short drive out of the city centre hosting technology, home and clothing retailers. For a wider selection of brands, Westfield Stratford City is just a 25 minute train journey away and has brands such as Mulberry, Pandora and Tommy Hilfiger to name but a few.
The city is host to a series of festivals throughout the year with the most well-known being V Festival. Attracting huge crowds once a year in the summer and hosting acts such Beyoncé, Muse and Coldplay, V Festival is the highlight of Chelmsford's music scene. The festival takes place in the picturesque ground of Hylands House, a stunning Grade II listed building nestled in 574 acres of historic landscaped parkland.
