  • Beautiful building with over 800 years of history! The grounds are lovely and quiet to sit to have your lunch as it's tucked behind other buildings so muffles the sounds of the hustle and bustle of the city. Inside is astonishing! Beautifully laid out and is colourful! Open to al during the day to have your own quiet prayers. There is limited parking by the cathedral, but there's plenty of parking in one of the many car parks in Chelmsford as it is within walking distance of them all. Would recommend visiting this place.
  • I love going through every time when I am free. It's a lovely place, with beautiful view and painted beautiful windows.
  • You need go and enjoy the gardens and the cathedral.
  • 800 year old seat of the Bishop of Chelmsford, this flint rubble, stone and brick built Cathedral has a magnificently colourful interior. Not immediately seen from the shopping complex, arrival in the court yard uncovers this peaceful gem. Guides are willing and will assist with history and explanations. Parking is best at one of the many town car parks.
  • A beautiful and surprising cathedral. As Chelmsford is a fairly new diocese, the cathedral has only been a cathedral for a relatively short period of time, but the work done since its change in status has been fantastic. Simultaneously an ancient and modern space for worship. A real gem in the heart of Chelmsford.
