Chelmsford is the county town of Essex and was made a city by Her Majesty the Queen as part of her Diamond Jubilee celebrations in 2012. It's a dynamic, exciting place to live, with plenty of new commercial and residential developments and lots going on.
Commuters love the fact that it's just 32 minutes into London from the city. There are also services to Ipswich, Clacton and Norwich. The A12 between London and Colchester also passes Chelmsford and links the city to main centres in the county. And if you're looking to travel even further afield, Stansted and Southend airports are both easy journeys.
There's a wide choice of very good state and independent schools in the city and the surrounding area too.
