Chelmsford, as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, is no longer considered a town, but has been declared a city in its own right, and is finally acquiring a good reputation after a long and uneventful history during which Charles Dickens himself wrote: “If any one were to ask me what in my opinion was the dullest and most stupid spot on the face of the Earth, I should decidedly say Chelmsford”!
Finally, its heritage is recognised and the city status is here to stay. Blooming with new shops, health centres and luxury apartments, pubs and of course, the V Festival, Chelmsford is now often referred to as a “new Marbella” or even a “new L.A.” If you love the night life, then this is the place for you. But that’s not all Chelmsford has to offer, far from it.
Families moving to Chelmsford will also be happy to know that the town boasts a selection of outstanding schools. Among the best primary schools in the area, Newlands Spring, The Tyrrells and Barnes Farm are worth mentioning, and the most sought after secondary schools include the excellent King Edward VI Grammar, Chelmsford County High for Girls and the Boswells.
Cultural places of interest include the lovely Cathedral, which used to be a church until the Diocese of Chelmsford was created in 1914, the new Salvation Army Citadel, with its almost overly modern design and the Chelmsford Museum in Oaklands Park, where one can admire interesting exhibits on some key personalities involved in the development of the town, such as Marconi and Crompton.
For all your shopping needs, don’t miss out on the Meadows, which feature a wide array of shops as well as bars, a cinema, excellent dining options and regular entertaining events such as competitions, kid’s clubs, Easter Hunts, etc.
As a newly expanded, trendy city, Chelmsford also offers a great variety of options for sports and fitness. You will find several leisure centres including the Riverside Ice & Leisure Centre, which features three swimming pools, an ice rink and several studios, the South Woodham Ferrers Leisure Centre, right in the town centre and perfect for those who work in the area, the Chelmsford Sport and Athletics Centre or the Dovedale Sports Centre, with its more intimate atmosphere.
So if you are looking to move to Chelmsford or in the area, expect a vibrant town on the grow and plenty of fun to be had, but it might be a bit much for you if you prefer a quieter lifestyle. In that case, you will probably prefer one of its surrounding villages.
