The Charm of Chelmsford
1 May 2021
Historic Chelmsford is the county town of Essex and is home to a wide variety activities and hidden gems. To introduce you to this incredible location, we’ve put together a list of the neighbourhood’s top attractions, all of which are close to our new impressive development, in the heart of the city.
A Royal Escape to Hylands Estate
Looking for a day out à la Bridgerton? Then the pristine Victorian gardens and ancient woodland of Hylands Estate is a must visit. Chelmsford City Council rescued this villa from dereliction in 1966 and now uses the exquisite grounds to host an array of festivals, community events and markets. What’s more, there’s an on-site gift shop, café and artists’ studio to for a pot of tea and spot of shopping.
Jump (for Jump Street)
Want to touch base with your inner acrobat? Jump Street is essentially a giant trampoline park, which warrants a mention for its sheer size and ingenuity. Jump Street appeals to adults and children alike; the warehouse trampoline park offers low-impact cardio workouts as a fitness class, providing the grown-ups with some cardiovascular fun.
Sweet or Salted? Choices, Choices at Chelmsford Civic Theatre
Once it reopens, your popcorn preference is the only problem you’ll encounter at Chelmsford’s state of the art Civic Theatre. The city’s largest theatre seats an audience of 504 with a traditional stalls and balcony structure. Not only does the theatre normally offer a jam-packed schedule of activity days for children, but there’s a year-round programme of live music, comedy, musicals, drama and dance, to ensure there’s enough fun for all age groups. Theatre not your thing? You can also attend talks by famous figures, from politicians to historians and even sports personalities. No matter your taste, this venue has you covered.
Give Ascot a Run for its Money with Chelmsford City Racecourse
Whilst the new Chelmsford City Racecourse routinely hosts horse races year round, the course truly comes to life for its Blue Ribbon Race and infamous Ladies’ Day, which both normally take place at the end of June. No longer will you be searching for the best excuse to wear your fancy frocks or best brogues; these floodlit races will ensure your day sparkles as much as you.
