We walked around the outside of the cathedral and grounds when visiting Chelmsford on several occasions. It is beautiful. The grounds are quiet and peaceful with many plants and flowers. Definitely should visit!

On Friday the 28th April I was singing in the Cathedral with The Chelmsford Male Voice Choir at a charity concert. There are regular musical events on Friday lunch times in the Cathedral and I believe that they are mainly free to attend. The Cathedral...More
