Since it was awarded city status during the Queen’s Jubilee, Chelmsford has become an even more desirable location for a short break. Not only is there an abundance of activities to keep you busy, you’re also only a 35 minute drive away from London; hire a car in Chelmsford and enjoy a day in the capital as well as exploring the exceptional Essex county city. A short drive or walk from the city centre, you’ll find one of our branches on Robjohns Road – a prime location for starting your trip the right way: behind the wheel and taking in the views.
