Chelmsford, a town on the grow

Chelmsford, located within Essex but also within the London commuter belt, is enjoying a wave of new residents thanks to its proximity to the capital and reputable transport links as well the town's thriving central hub.

The county town of Essex is the largest in the area by some distance and is located equidistant between Colchester and London. The main advantage of buying property for sale in Chelmsford is that you can enjoy the fresher air and quieter lifestyle that comes with living outside London. 

However, you are also only a short drive or train ride away from the capital whether you need to head there for work or pleasure. Not that you need to head too far from Chelmsford to have everything you need. Being the largest town in Essex, Chelmsford has a buzzing high street full of attractive shops, pubs, bars and restaurants. The high street was also vastly improved during recent years to make pedestrian access that bit easier and help increase custom for local businesses. 

The town is also home to Hylands Park, this is a large, open expanse of land which is notably used to host the V Festival every year. It also hosts a number of other events throughout the calendar and is a real feather in Chelmsford's cap. 

Sport is a key factor in Chelmsford as a town, it hosts all manner of sporting teams, clubs and associations. Rugby, football, ice-hockey and cricket are all played in Chelmsford with Essex County Cricket Club playing their cricket in the town.
