Need a Hotel Near Chelmsford?
With spacious rooms, a golf course and spa, Crowne Plaza Colchester could be the perfect choice for you
Just 20 miles from Crowne Plaza Resort & Spa and you will find yourself in Chelmsford, a leafy Essex town, known for its green spaces, affluent residents and excellent transport links to and from London.
Formerly known as a commuter hub, due to its fantastic location just thirty miles east of London, Chelmsford reaps the benefit of regular trains to London Liverpool Street, Harwich and Norwich and is just a 30 minute drive from Stansted airport. This doesn’t mean it’s a hectic thoroughfare or filled with the city’s hustle and bustle, though; quite the contrary. From Central Park and Hylands Park to the gorgeous settings of RHS Garden Hyde Hall and Chelmsford Cathedral, this town is well known for its picturesque walking spots and picnic spaces. In fact, Chelmsford can sometimes feel like one giant suburb, with its waterside spots and gorgeous residential properties, making you forget you’re close to the capital city altogether.
If you would like to do a spot of shopping during your stay at our Chelmsford hotel, the High Chelmer and The Meadows centres are both great options for high street finds, but a wander down Moulsham Street will lead you into the palms of independent retailers and market stall holders, selling fine cuts of meat and artisanal cheeses, as well as secondhand and vintage clothing. There are also plenty of places to stop for a bite between shops, including chain restaurants such as Café Rouge, Pizza Express and Giraffe, as well as popular local choices such as Olio and the Alma.
There are, of course, lots of ways to explore the rich history of this beautiful British town, such as boat tours and a wander around Chelmsford Cathedral; there’s lots to do outside of shopping and walking, too. If you are staying during the summer, V Festival, held in Hylands Park, is a really great way to spend the day – or even the whole weekend – listening to music and eating good food in this gorgeous part of the world.
