Pocket Guide: Chelmsford Chelmsford Cathedral Hotels

Chelmsford Cathedral is located in the Essex county town of Chelmsford. Although it is the second smallest cathedral in England (after Derby Cathedral), Chelmsford Cathedral is a magnificent Gothic-style structure with a long history dating back to the 13th century. Actually, that's not technically correct, as it was only in 1914 that the Church of St. Mary and the Virgin (as it was then called) became the cathedral for the newly created diocese of Chelmsford.

Explore a Historic Building from Hotels in Essex

Cathedrals are some of the oldest buildings in Britain, with many dating back to the 12th and 13th Centuries, and they should be top of your list if you're looking for a historic day out with your family. Although not actually a cathedral until the early 20th century, Chelmsford Cathedral is steeped in history - rebuilt in the 15th and 16th Centuries and then renovated extensively in 1800 after a partial collapse. The cathedral has two magnificent organs, The Nave Organ and The Chancel Organ, both in good working order and regularly played in accompaniment to the cathedral choirs.

The cathedral is at the heart of the Chelmsford community and regularly hosts events, musical concerts and services. There are several quality hotels in Essex close by, including several in Chelmsford itself, such as The County Hotel on Rainsford Road and The Compasses on Broomfield Road. Chelmsford enjoys excellent transport links, so, even if you're staying in a hotel elsewhere in the county, the cathedral still makes for a worthwhile family afternoon outing.

A Great Day Out from Hotels In Chelmsford

Chelmsford Cathedral is just one of the many attractions in Chelmsford. This historic market town has a lively high street, where you'll find all sorts of eateries and characterful shops. If the cathedral doesn't quite satisfy your taste for local history and culture, you might pop into Chelmsford Museum, which is a fascinating repository of the region's heritage from the prehistoric times to the modern day. Chelmsford is served by Chelmsford Railway Station, on the Great Eastern Main Land, and the cathedral is just a short walk from there, around five minutes.
